Zimbabweans Fighting HIV/AIDS Turned Away as State Clinics Close

October 30, 2008

In Zimbabwe, a widening strike by health professionals has shuttered several clinics that provide critical HIV/AIDS services, including treatment of opportunistic infections and antiretroviral distribution. Nurses and doctors joined the strike, forcing the closure of clinics in Parirenyatwa and Harare hospitals in the capital and in nearby Chitungwiza. Representatives of the Zimbabwe National Network of People Living with HIV/AIDS will meet with the health minister on Thursday to discuss the closures, said Benjamin Mazhindu, the network's chairperson.
