Desmond Tutu HIV Foundation

The Desmond Tutu HIV Foundation runs the HIV Clinic at Somerset Hospital. Realizing this was not enough, they began taking treatment out to where the most needy people are: Nyanga district, Masiphumelele and other poverty-stricken areas. Their approach to the HIV epidemic in these areas is holistic, covering awareness, treatment, voluntary counselling and testing, education and support to young people and training for professional and lay health care workers.
