SANAC Welcomes HIV Pill Breakthrough

SANAC welcomes an announcement by the Department of Health of a single daily pill to treat HIV

The South African National AIDS Council (SANAC) has welcomed an announcement by Health Minister, Aaron Motsoaledi, of a single daily pill to treat HIV.

HIV positive people on antiretrovirals will from next April take one pill a day instead of three, following the awarding of a R5.9 billion new tender to three pharmaceutical companies for the provision of antiretroviral drugs.

“We believe that this is a major benefit in terms of compliance; it also means that logistics and storage are reduced," states Motsoaledi.
