THE dormant Ndlambe Aids council was relaunched last week due to the initiative of mayor Phindile Faxi.

Faxi contacted HIV/Aids co-ordinator for Cacadu, Celiwe Chewu, to revive the structure to address ways of reducing the high rate of HIV infection.

 

A workshop held at the Ndlambe council chambers last Thursday to discuss the high rate of HIV infection in Ndlambe, its causes and how to reduce the incidence of HIV.

One group noted the problem of school children who are neglected by their parents, and who become sexually active and seek blessings from older sexual partners.
