More Joburg residents access HIV treatment and care services Print E-mail
29 November 2017
WorldAidsDay

The number of patients receiving antiretroviral therapy from Joburg clinics has increased from 39 924 in 2011 to 296 485 in 2017, which represents an enormous 643% jump.

HIV counselling and testing services and anti-retroviral treatment including prevention of mother to child transmission is offered at all City of Johannesburg clinics.

To increase access to information and treatment of HIV, the City’s Health Department rolled out the Jozi Ihlomile (Joburg is armed) HIV and AIDS door-to-door education programme in 45 deprived wards within the City.

The community education programmes prioritise prevention of new HIV infections (combination prevention) but include health care for people with HIV and TB, and social services for all communities, especially vulnerable children. The educator refers households or individuals to services provided by government and non-governmental organisations in the ward and follows up to check progress.

The table below provides a summary of the Jozi Ihlomile HIV and AIDS door-to-door education programme for 2016/17.
