  • SADC to Push for Universal HIV Testing

    Several leaders of the Southern African Development Community (SADC), speaking at the organisation's summit in Lilongwe, called on member states to adopt the principle of universal testing for HIV, rather than leaving it up to each citizen to decide whether to take an HIV test or not.

    Among those who called for universal testing were the Presidents of Zimbabwe and the Democratic Republic of Congo, Robert Mugabe and Joseph Kabila, and the chairperson of the African Union Commission, Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma.

    They argue that the AIDS pandemic is such a serious public health threat, that it is no longer an option to allow people to decide for themselves whether they will be tested, and whether they will be treated if they turn out to be HIV-positive.
