Health Minister, Aaron Motsoaledi, says that South Africa is lagging behind the rest of Africa with its HIV/AIDS campaigns because it talks too much and acts too slowly.
Speaking during the South African National AIDS Council meeting in Johannesburg, Motsoaledi says that, “It’s not a secret that we didn’t do well.”
Motsoaledi says South Africa’s slow response to the pandemic was raised by UNAIDS executive director, Michel Sidibe, in New York in June. He further says SA wasted too much time debating the pandemic, adding that: “Many African countries are implementing; South Africa is still debating.”
