MSF’s report on #UntreatedViolence in Rustenburg reveals that sexual violence, including rape, is at worryingly high levels in the Platinum Mining Belt area: one in four women had been raped in their lifetime, and approximately half have experienced some form of sexual or intimate partner violence.
Campaigning for Access to Routine Viral Load Monitoring (PORTUGUESE)
The aim of the Activist Toolkit for Routine Viral Load Testing is to enable and mobilize PLHIV and activists to use science and evidence to persuasively and actively advocate to decision makers and service providers for access to, and availability of, affordable routine viral load testing for PLHIV.

Based on a survey performed across ten MSF supported ART sites and seven viral load testing laboratories in February 2016, “Making viral load routine” aims to share practical lessons from the field with Ministries of Health and implementing partners. The report reflects both on the programmatic strategies required within the clinic (for clinicians, counsellors and patients) and the realities of both setting up and keeping a viral load testing laboratory functional in such settings.
