Reporting on HIV/AIDS in Khayelitsha, a province of Cape Town, on the Western Cape of South Africa

via BBC World Service – Find A Programme – Health Check.

In this piece, Hammond gives a fascinating insight into the real impact of HIV/AIDS in South Africa, and along the way meets many encouraging people who are trying to make a difference. In particular, the link between immuno-suppressed HIV/AIDS patients and tuberculosis is explored, with attention on the difficulties of obtaining patient compliance with complicated medication schemes that TB and HIV/AIDS demands. More a story of hope than anything else, but the scale of the problem cannot be underestimated.
