HIV/AIDS at 12 cases
THE number of cases of HIV/AIDS in Vanuatu has now reached 12.
This was revealed at an important consultative meeting held on Thursday in Vila conducted by the Director Public Health, Len Tarivonda.
He made it clear that two had died a few years ago, leaving eight cases; four from Tanna which are recent, two from Santo and two from Efate.
Women’s advocates have questioned why people were not made aware of the increase until now.
