HIV Testing for University Students

A campaign aimed at encouraging voluntary HIV/AIDS testing among first-year students kicked-off at the Mangosuthu University of Technology.
 
Branded ‘First Things First’, the campaign is spearheaded by Innovative Medicine of South Africa in collaboration with the South African National AIDS Council (SANAC) and hopes to test more than 35 000 students at all the country's 16 universities.
 
SANAC spokesperson, Junaid Seedat, described first-year students as future leaders, saying that voluntary testing will give them guidance in taking correct decisions. Seedat said that although the campaign focuses on first-year students, it forms part of the government's objective to encourage more than 15 million South Africans to get tested this year.
