HIV-Positive Patients Default on ARVs

Health practitioners concerned about the growing number of new HIV/AIDS patients defaulting on antiretroviral treatment

Health practitioners in KwaZulu-Natal have raised concerns about the growing number of new HIV/AIDS patients defaulting on antiretroviral treatment.

During the HIV/AIDS Symposium held at the City of uMhlathuze in eMpangeni on the north coast, they said that in that municipality alone, about 500 HIV/AIDS patients have defaulted on ARVs in the past year.

They further said that close to 7 000 people people have not returned to clinics for disease management and support in the province.
