HIV/ AIDS Unit

The HIV Unit offer a wide range of services to our student community across all our campuses. These services include a robust peer education program, HIV testing, screening for sexually transmitted infections and tuberculosis, blood pressure, blood glucose screening services through our testing venues and our Mobile Wellness Services. We have an internship program where students are given workplace experiences to prepare them for the workplace. Other services include mass awareness campaigns, curriculum integration, research and community engagement activities. We work closely with all departments within the institution, with Higher Health (previously known as HEAIDS), Western Cape Department of Health, Department Social Development, Department of Justice and various local Not for Profit organizations such as RapeCrisis Centre, Sonke Gender Justice, TB HIV Care, Partners in Sexual Health and many more to bring the best services to you as a student.
