Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe has urged more South African men to get tested for HIV and AIDS.
Speaking during the South African National AIDS Council (SANAC) plenary session held in Bloemfontein, Motlanthe pointed out that government’s massive HIV-AIDS counselling campaign indicate that fewer men have tested compared with the number of women.
He said there are still important sectors such as religious and private that need to demonstrate visible leadership in testing for HIV.
The session, which was attended by various ministers, deputy ministers, Free State Premier Ace Magashule and MECs of the province, was aimed at debating a wide range of interventions towards scaling up on ways to tackle the HIV-AIDS epidemic.
