Government has revitalised its programmes to promote various prevention measures including medical male circumcision, prevention of mother to child transmission and the promotion of HIV testing.
Delivering his State of the Nation Address 2011 in Cape Town, Zuma stated that the testing has been popularly taken up around the country, adding that just over five million HIV tests have been done since the launch of the testing campaign in April last year.
In the same vein, Zuma said that over the past year, work has continued to develop the National Health Insurance policy and implementation plan. He promised that government will soon be releasing the policy document for public engagement.
