HIV/Aids testing drive in Caledon and surrounds

Mish-al Ebrahim and Rishika Prag, are both fourth-year medical students.

They hosted a HIV testing drive at Swartberg Secondary School on 30 July. Their aim was to help raise awareness about the condition and possibly put any myths surrounding it to rest.

“As part of our Community Orientated Primary Care (COPC) project we decided to initiate the drive, to be sustained by future groups involved in the project, and much to our surprise we received an overwhelming response and enthusiasm from the students. We did not expect the students to engage with us as much as they did,” Simone Carelse, Overberg health department spokesperson, said.

Said Prag: “We hope this will set the tone for future generations in terms of bettering our efforts to raise awareness. We thank everyone who played a part in helping us make this a reality personally. It has been a privilege to work among the residents of Caledon. We hope our efforts leave a lasting impact.”
