A large chunk of our reporting focuses on HIV. Since the launch of Bhekisisa in 2013, we’ve covered HIV in-depth — from the impact of the virus on former president Nelson Mandela’s family to the advances in antiretroviral treatment and anti-HIV pills and injections. We’ve also looked at the impact of inequality and discrimination on the spread of HIV, the link between gender-based violence and HIV — and ways to fix it.
Tomorrow, Health Minister Zweli Mkhize is expected to announce the rollout of a new blockbuster HIV drug called dolutegravir. But the success of the new medication depends on many things, not least of which giving women a real choice when it comes to contraception.
Watch live as activists, officials and experts tell you what you need to know as part of Bhekisisa’s latest policy dialogue.
