The SWRHA continues to play an integral role in the prevention and treatment of HIV/AIDS. In recognition of World AIDS Day, the SWRHA in collaboration with the Ministry of Heath’s HIV/AIDS Coordinating Unit (HACU) hosted an Outreach Caravan at the San Fernando Licencing Office. A dozen members of staff were on hand to provide rapid testing and encourage people to “Know their Status.” Counselling was also provided about how to maintain a negative status or how to seek treatment for a positive result.
Remember, get tested today. Know your Status! HIV testing is provided as all SWRHA health facilities. Feel free to contact your nearest health centre for the HIV testing schedule in your area.
