KWAZULU-NATAL health MEC Sibongiseni Dhlomo has given his department a clean bill of health and has rejected reports that the province's antiretroviral (ARV) campaign is not on track.
Dhlomo was responding to media reports that patients living with HIV and Aids were being turned away from state hospitals and clinics.
"All our facilities have adequate stocks of medication, nutritional support packs and we have not had an instance of running out of stock," Dhlomo said.
He said there was no shortage of ARVs and "there can be no shortages at clinics because we don't keep them there".
Non-governmental organisation Treatment Action Campaign (TAC) maintains that the ARV roll-out in the province is facing huge challenges in the near future.
TAC field workers indicate that people are dying while waiting to be put on the ARV waiting programme.
"Our field workers have indicated there are huge problems with the supply, distribution and availability of the medication," said TAC spokesman Richard Shandu.
