Premier Sibusiso Ndebele of KwaZuluNatal says HIV-Aids should not be considered a death sentence.

He urged the provincial Council on Aids to move out of the "boardroom and move towards a social movement" at its meeting on Tuesday.

"The Council on Aids must be creative and must be a catalyst for creative initiatives. We can turn the tide. But to do this we need more than the Council on Aids; we need a social movement to spread the message."

As part of the province's campaign on HIV and Aids, Ndebele, pictured, called on the council to convene a provincial summit on teenage pregnancies and to ensure that schools had programmes to prevent teen pregnancies.
