CPUT commemorates World Aids Day

LEADER: HOD of the HIV/Aids unit Dr Ashraf Mohammed is leading the fight against the disease at CPUT.

CPUT staff and students will be commemorating World Aids Day on our Cape Town Campus today.

The event is the culmination of a year which saw CPUT being heralded as a front-runner amongst tertiary institutions in the fight against the disease.

The cornerstones of CPUT’S HIV/Aids unit are the peer educators, who work tirelessly on campus spreading prevention methods and giving support.

Last month, peer educators from all three campuses were acknowledged for their contribution at a glitzy event.

Director of the Higher Education Aids Department (HEAids), Dr Ramneek Ahluwalia, says CPUT is doing very well compared to the 23 other institutions his organisation monitors.

“Peer education is the way forward and I believe in it,” he says.

“CPUT is doing very well and I appreciate your efforts.”

HIV/Aids unit HOD Dr Ashraf Mohammed personally congratulated each educator and awarded them with a certificate.

Join the HIV/Aids unit between 1 and 2pm in Seminar Room two of the Administration Building on Cape Town campus.

The theme is “Getting to Zero” and the team have an uplifting and informative programme planned.
