Minister of Health Manto Tshabalala-Msimang opened the South African AIDS exhibition to a background of brightly coloured displays at the International AIDS Conference in Toronto, Canada, on Sunday. The exhibition showcases garlic, lemon and beetroot.
Sick people can't farm, they can't work. Hungry people can't eat AIDS messages, said HIV/AIDS and food security officer Dr Gabriel Rugulema, speaking to journalists ahead of the 16th International AIDS conference in Toronto, which starts on Sunday.
Anti-retrovirals (ARVs) could cost South Africans as little as about R100 a month and local manufacturing of generics could start as early as next month, it was announced on Tuesday.
