Joint INERELA+ and ANOVA workshop.

The Aids Fonds project on HIV Counselling and Testing for men through Religious Leaders in Mopane, Limpopo commenced today. The focus of training today was on the roles of Religious Leaders in mobilising and increasing men’s uptake of services, particularly HCT and gender equality. Gender imbalance is one of the contributing factors which escalates the HIV prevalence rate among women,

“If gender is learned, it can be unlearned. Why do Religious Leaders focus on Genesis 2 and not 1? By default, they have chosen to ignore chapter 1 because it promotes equality”- Reverend Phumzile Mabizela.
