Raping Children Not Cure for HIV - NGOs

NGOs condemn men who rape children or have sex with virgins ‘to cure their HIV’

The Teddy Bear Clinic says that more education is needed to dispel the myth that raping children or having sex with a virgin is a cure for HIV.
 
Teddy Bear Clinic clinical director, Dr Shaheda Omar, argues that, “It’s ridiculous to think that when you are infected, violating a virgin or a victim is going to take away the infection.”

In the same vein, Childline’s director in Gauteng, Lynne Cawood, agrees. Cawood explains: “It’s ludicrous to think that raping a child or a virgin could cure HIV.”
 
Their comments follow an incident in which a Soweto father allegedly raped his two-year-old daughter, believing it will cure him of HIV.
