- People who need health services the most are often driven away from clinics and hospitals because doctors and nurses refuse to help them or make them feel uncomfortable.
- Researchers from Ritshidze found that people with a higher chance of getting HIV frequently don’t get helped at government health facilities. Their report asked men who have sex with men, sex workers, transgender people, injecting drug users and prisoners about the services they got at state clinics and hospitals.
