Antiretroviral treatment continues at Tapologo and Nazareth House
Anti-retroviral treatment continues at Tapologo (Diocese of Rustenburg) and Nazareth House, Johannesburg for another year as a result of the no-cost extension granted by the Centres for Disease Control (CDC) to the SACBC AIDS Office.
The two centres were among the first treatment centres established by the SACBC AIDS Office and began providing treatment in early 2004. Both have transferred numerous stable patients into Department of Health clinics, and both are committed to long-term service delivery.
Tapologo serves the community in the platinum area which has been affected by the five-month long mining sector strike which ended this week. Nazareth House serves the inner city area of Johannesburg, a densely populated area and home to many foreign nationals, many of whom who have struggled to access health services.
The report here gives an overview of the SACBC treatment programme since it began in 2004.
