Wits not yet accredited to provide HIV prevention pill

THE HIGHER Education and Training HIV/AIDS Programme (HEAIDS) announced last week that they would now provide the HIV prevention pill pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), also known as Truvada, to university students. However, Wits Vuvuzela has been told that the university’s Campus Health Clinic is not yet accredited by the Department of Health to provide students with the pill.
