Highest infection rate - no where to go!
Hi there everyone
Is this not absolutely disgusting!!! on the news today it states that SA has the highest infection rate in the world but yet where do we go for treatment without losing our jobs while sitting in provincial hospitals for days just to be seen!!!!!
Where are our rights to medication, where are our rights to counceling, where are our rights for the middle class in SA.
You either have to be on some kind of grant and unemployed to receive free treatment or you have to be rich and afford the rediculous medical aids to get privately helped.
What do we do??
