2017 marked a turning point in South Africa’s response to the HIV epidemic, with over half of the 7 million people living with HIV now receiving antiretroviral treatment. While this is welcome progress, we are still a long way from reaching the global 90-90-90 targets. Anova continues to partner with government health services and communities to reach these targets – with over 750 000 people tested for HIV in supported facilities and over 60 000 people starting antiretroviral treatment in the last year.

World Aids Day is every day at Anova! See what HIV prevention looks like at Anova Health Institute.
Anova's new harm reduction project, Jab Smart, is helping people who inject/use drugs to be safe. The team encourages these clients to test for HIV and refers those that test positive to go to the clinic and access treatment. Launched in June, the mobile unit visits hotspots where the team also offer the people who are using drugs harm reduction packs (clean needles, sterile water), STI screenings and counselling, and general health checks.
Anova Health Institute is one of the co-endorsers of the 9th HIV Pediatric Workshop taking place in Paris, France, from July 21-22. The workshop will feature the world's most prominent and distinguished speakers discussing the most current and trending issues in the field. Delegates can look forward to an exciting and highly interactive programme that will inspire and promote new strategies to advance the field.
