HIV Infections Outpace Prevention – Motlanthe

The rate of new HIV infections continues to outpace prevention efforts, says Motlanthe

Deputy President, Kgalema Motlanthe, says that the rate of new HIV infections continues to outpace prevention efforts.
 
Replying to questions in the National Council of Provinces, Motlanthe, told members there are now an estimated 5.38 million people with HIV in South Africa.
 
He says this translates into a HIV prevalence of 10.6 percent for the overall population, and 16.6 percent for the 15 to 29 year age group.
 
Responding to a question on whether South Africa was winning the battle against HIV/AIDS, he said a number of programmes had begun to have an impact.
