On Friday 5 Dec ’14, we held a World Aids Day event in the park in Westlake Village, together with Westlake Clinic, Jacqui Ross and other City of Cape Town Health officials, who came to do HIV testing. We managed to erect 2 tents, which fortunately did not get blown away in the wind, and tested 30 people in 2 hours! Veronica, Zoe and Patricia monitored Blood Pressures, and it was such a success that we will be repeating it again in the near future.
The carers also distributed HIV information and breast feeding pamphlets and over 6000 condoms in the village.
