A new report says 2‚000 girls and young women are infected with HIV every week in South Africa
‘A staggering 2‚000 girls and young women are newly-infected with HIV every single week. Fifty-two weeks of the year – this is Ellis Park Stadium filled twice or Soccer City in Nasrec with every single seat taken plus [people] outside‚ or a capacity crowd at Moses Mabhida just down the road from here with an additional 35‚000 outside‚” said Surty.
“We cannot let this situation continue. It will undermine every effort we make towards creating a prosperous and thriving society.”
“It is now common knowledge that our youth bear the brunt of new HIV infections,” said Surty.
