Increasing HTS uptake amongst men

On the 17th August 2016, Kudvumisa had the Opportunity to host a soccer tournament at Lomahasha Nkalashane sports ground. The aim of this event was to increase the HTS uptake amongst men which was indeed a great success. This day was made possible by URC who is a Sub Donor to Kudvumisa. The event aided the Organization to reach 435 people and 315 of this total were men. We also got the chance to address issues of gender equality by incorporating ladies soccer in the tournament where two women teams battled for a prize. Test and Start has been launched from the 1st October 2016, approximately 3 clients have been initiated on ART. To deal with stigma and discrimination on the issues of HIV/ AIDS, we have introduced service integration such as NCD screening and treating general ailments.
