South Africa can beat HIV-Aids in 10 years, ANC president Jacob Zuma said in Kempton Park yesterday.
"If we act together we can beat HIV and Aids in the next 10 years," Zuma told a conference of religious leaders in a speech on building a caring society. He said South Africa needed to utilise its knowledge about HIV.
"We know that HIV can be prevented and that treatment works. We know mothers can remain healthy and their babies can be born free of HIV, and we know that infection rates are relatively low for people younger than 19 years old. We know what we should do and should do it. The stigma of Aids should be removed.
"HIV-Aids should not be a condition we speak about in hushed tones. We must be open and speak about this disease to prevent infections.
"We must provide treatment and social support. The ruling party cares and will do its best to make a difference," Zuma said. - Sapa
