NUM on World Aids Day

30 November 2014

The National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) joins millions of South Africans and the world in celebrating World Aids Day tomorrow 1st of December 2014. The NUM is highly impressed by the commitment, dedication and progress made by the government in fighting against the pandemic head-on.

Mineworkers are particularly vulnerable to the spread of HIV because they live in an environment where veneral diseases (VD) and tuberculosis, both of which interacted with it, often lethally, are not only firmly established but are spreading. The combination of those diseases with HIV constituted the greatest threat to their health.

The NUM will continue in its campaign of encouraging its members and society to heed the call to test and live positive lifestyles. The NUM appeals to the South African public to remain vigilant and united in the fight against HIV/Aids and to work with the government in dealing with the stigma where it exists.
