Ramaphosa: Sex Workers to Access ARVs

Sex workers, long ignored by the government and harassed by police, will finally get access to HIV treatment and prevention.

Sex workers, long ignored by the government and harassed by police, will finally get access to HIV treatment and prevention - but decriminalisation has not been dealt with by government and this could hobble the initiative.
 
Deputy President, Cyril Ramaphosa, released a detailed plan on Friday to ensure sex workers achieve better healthcare.
 
With about 70 percent of sex workers in Johannesburg are HIV-positive, Ramaphosa said sex workers will now receive antiretrovirals as soon as they test positive.
 
He said unlike other South Africans, they will not have to wait until their CD4 count - the measure of immunity - drops to 500 to qualify.
