19,000 HIV/AIDS Workers Trained for the Frontlines

17 July 2014.

  

Today the Children with HIV Association (CHIVA) celebrates ten years of mentoring and training healthcare workers to treat HIV/Aids in children and adolescents.

 

This remarkable organisation has trained 19 000 healthcare workers since its founding by Dr Karyn Moshal, a Durban-born paediatrician. In 2004, in memory of Prince Nelisuzulu Benedict Buthelezi, the son of IFP President, Prince Mangosuthu Buthelezi, the Moshal family created a fund for initiatives like CHIVA.

 

As CHIVA celebrates its 10th anniversary, Prince Buthelezi will be among the guests honouring the work of Dr Moshal. As one of the first champions in the fight against HIV/Aids, Prince Buthelezi will thank CHIVA for changing the lives of countless children.
