Staff from the Dr Abdurahman day hospital marked World Aids Day on December 1 last week, walking with placards to the Dulcie September civic centre. The hospital staff were supported by the Kewtown Women’s Circle, Young Men’s Christian Association (YMCA), and Ward 49 councillor Rashid Adams. At the civic centre, the Athlone SAPS, Rape Crisis and the YMCA had set up information tables and the public could have free HIV tests.
