World Aids Day at Mowbray Maternity Hospital

26 November 2009

As part of the World AIDS day celebrations, Mowbray Maternity Hospital's staff will be hosting an event for staff, patients, as well as members of the community on 1 December 2009 from 10:00 till 12:00.


This year's theme "Universal Access and Human Rights" has been chosen to address the critical need to protect human rights and attain access for all to HIV prevention, treatment, care and support. With this event, the hospital aims to diminish the stigma attached to HIV/AIDS, as well as encourage community involvement. This event also aims to educate and raise awareness about the increasing numbers of people infected with HIV.

Mrs Pauline Pieters will be the speaker on the day, as well as a mother to be who is currently living with HIV.

If you are interested in attending the event, then come to Lecture Room 7 and 8 at Mowbray Maternity Hospital on 1 December 2009 or contact Sister Jacoba Riekert on 021 659 5916 for more information.
