HIV/AIDS

We are either 'infected' or 'affected' by HIV and AIDS in South Africa. Many HIV and AIDS sufferers aren't in a social, financial or emotional position to manage their condition. The PROVIDENCE HIV and AIDS programme provides the necessary professional support in these important areas of a sufferer's life.

  • Expert advice on healthy living, safe sex practices, diet, and hygiene.
  • Antiretrovirals (ART's), advice on ART's, when to commence ART's, their side effects, and the importance of adherence to treatment.
  • Treatment for Prevention of Mother to Child Transmission Prophylaxis (PMTCT).
  • Post Exposure Prophylaxis (PEP) for sexual assault.
  • Prophylactic antibiotics - treatment of opportunistic infections.
  • Access to vitamins and vaccinations.
  • Regular follow up calls to PLHIV to assist with adherence.
  • Blood Tests, all 6 monthly follow up blood tests are covered.
  • Clinical Support from our leading specialist in HIV and AIDS.
