THE AVERAGE HOUSEHOLD WEALTH IN SOUTH AFRICA VS THE WORLD

The group lists South Africa as having the 37th highest average net household wealth among the countries assessed, with EUR 7,770 per capita (±R127,300), up from EUR 7,080 in 2017 (±R116,000).

Kenyans try new world of HIV self-testing kits

Truck drivers and prostitutes have taken to HIV self-testing like a duck to water, reveals recent studies.

In the latest of two studies, a majority of truck drivers and turn-boys in Nakuru chose ‘selfies’ or self-testing (self-testing is when you perform an HIV test on yourself, in private, and get an immediate result) instead of being tested by a health worker.

In the second study, prostitutes in Kisumu were used in what has been described as “successful distribution of self-test to their clients and partners”. Studies justifying the introduction of self-test kits in Kenya show truck drivers, sex workers, pharmacists and couples are eager to take up the [...]
