HIV

HIV and AIDS can be a sensitive matter, whether one has the condition or not. Our skilled and professional consultants respect your right to privacy and will help you get access to clinically sound and cost-effective treatment for your individual case.

This programme provides access to benefits for treatment and counselling to all Scheme beneficiaries who are HIV positive, or who are exposed to the HIV virus and are at risk of infection. We will always manage each case with complete confidentiality.

Benefits of the Programme include:

  • Counselling
  • Adherence monitoring
  • Authorisation and access to Anti-Retroviral Treatment (ART)
  • Authorisation and access to monitoring tests
  • Authorisation and access to treatment for Opportunistic Infections (OIs)
  • Authorisation for access to multivitamins and vaccinations
  • Authorisation for Post-Exposure Prophylaxis (PEP) following accidental and unintended potential exposure to HIV
  • Authorisation for Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) before potential exposure to HIV by HIV-negative people to prevent the acquisition of HIV
  • Authorisation for Prevention of Mother-To-Child Transmission (PMTCT), including milk formula
