200 HIV test kits, as well as syringes, bandages, and cleaner was donated to WOFAD on August 13th, 2014, by Galaxy Pharmaceutical & Surgical LTD. located in Blantyre city. HIV and AIDS continue to be a prevalent challenge for rural as well as urban communities throughout Malawi. Despite much effort by government and civil society organisations, infection rates continue to be high affecting especially women and young people. WOFAD promotes safe sex and supports the initiative of engaging citizens, especially youth, to get frequent HIV-testing.

The test kits will be used in the next coming weeks as WOFAD plans to conduct and promote HIV-tests in the month of September. Free, confidential HIV testing will be offered at the WOFAD office in Chirimba, Blantyre, behind Rose Garden School. Please visit our website and facebook page for further updates.
