The University of Venda has taken a proactive step in promoting student health by inaugurating its ‘First Things First Campaign’ on Monday. This significant initiative is centered around voluntary HIV testing, delivering crucial HIV education, counseling, and testing services to the university’s student body.
In an official statement, the university emphasized the campaign’s objective: “Our primary aim is to motivate students to undergo HIV testing, enabling them to be aware of their HIV status.”
By fostering a culture of open dialogue and proactive healthcare, the University of Venda strives to empower its students to take charge of their well-being.
Through this campaign, students are provided with comprehensive information about HIV, its transmission, prevention, and treatment. Additionally, counseling services are readily available to address any concerns or questions that students may have regarding HIV.
The campaign culminates in voluntary HIV testing, ensuring that students can access a confidential and supportive environment to know their HIV status.
By instilling a sense of responsibility and self-care, the university is paving the way for improved overall health within the student community.
The ‘First Things First Campaign’ is not only about testing; it’s about fostering a safer and healthier campus environment where students can make informed decisions about their health.
