How to prevent HIV with a pill
If you are at risk of being exposed to HIV through sex, you could consider taking the HIV prevention pill. (Delwyn Verasamy)

Bhekisisa editor-in-chief Mia Malan speaks to Doctors Without Borders’ Candice Sehoma to find out why (Johnson & Johnson) J&J is so slow to deliver South Africa’s COVID-19 vaccines. 

This episode also looks at how HIV prevention pills and injections work, how much they cost and where they can be accessed in South Africa (or not). Yogan Pillay, country director for the Clinton Health Access Initiative and Linda-Gail Bekker from the Desmond Tutu HIV Centre at the University of Cape Town unpack the science and policies behind these HIV prevention methods. 

The Health Hub airs at 9am on Sunday mornings on Newzroom Afrika, DSTV channel 405
