SA Progress in the Fight Against AIDS – CAPRISA

South Africa has made significant strides in fighting the battle against the HIV/Aids epidemic, says CAPRISA

South Africa has over the past five years made significant strides in fighting the battle against the HIV/Aids epidemic, according to the Centre for the AIDS Programme of Research in South Africa (CAPRISA).

CAPRISA director, Professor Salim Abdool Karim, speaking at the 7th South Aids Conference in Durban, stated that the rate of mother to child transmission has dropped to less than one percent compared to the rate of one in three well over ten years ago.

Karim noted that while more than two million have been placed on a successful programme of the rollout of antiretroviral treatment (ARVs), the country also faces numerous challenges with high rates of infection.
