Standing up for gender equality

Male students were encouraged to speak out in support of gender equality at the launch of CPUT’s HeforShe branch.

This year World Aids Day on 1 December will be commemorated with a week-long campaign across two of CPUT’s campuses – Bellville and Cape Town.

Three books targeting students about HIV/Aids and general wellness have been produced at CPUT and will be rolled out across higher education institutions.

Students from universities and TVET Colleges around the Western Cape have committed themselves to tackling the Aids epidemic head on by engaging in issues of unprotected sex , sexual and gender-based violence, substance abuse,  HIV testing and other free health related services offered at the conference .

The HIV/AIDS Unit has recently launched a women empowerment campaign, ZAZI, which is primarily targeting young ladies between the ages of 16-24.

The HIV/AIDS Unit, in partnership with the Campus Health Clinic, the Department of Health and TB/HIV Care Association, has launched a Voluntary Medical Male Circumcision Campaign.
