HIV Infected Children Not Aware of Status

NGO advises caregivers to disclose HIV status to infected children

Research conducted by the Department of Health in 2012 revealed that over 400 000 South African children under the age 15 in South Africa were HIV-positive.

The Alliance Against HIV/AIDs, a Northern Cape based non-governmental organisation (NGO), says over 80 percent of caregivers in the province are withholding this information from children.
 
The organisation’s spokesperson, Mpho Lekgetho, warns the affected people of the dangers of withholding such information.
