Are you #ImmuneFit?

Worried about the coronavirus? You need a fit and strong immune system to protect you from COVID-19, especially if you are HIV positive.

The good news is that ARV treatment helps boost the immune system of HIV positive people to stay strong against infections.

That’s why now is the time to get tested for HIV or get onto ARV treatment if you need it. Free for gay, bi and other men who have sex with men at TEN81 in Pretoria!

Come to our friendly clinic in Hatfield or we can bring our mobile services to your home or area in Tshwane (Ts&Cs apply). Call us on 012 430 3272 or 066 190 5812 to find out how.

Remember, we also offer free PrEP, STI screening, condoms & lube and telephone and Skype counselling in these tough times.

TEN81 statement on the coronavirus crisis

As we face the threat of the coronavirus in South Africa and across the world, the well-being of OUT and TEN81’s clients, staff members and community is of critical importance. We would, therefore, like to inform you of what steps we are taking to reduce the risk of infection while maintaining our services.

Here’s why early HIV treatment means a healthier life

If you have been living with HIV for a while or just recently discovered that you are positive, the sooner you start treatment and stay on it, the better. Here’s why EARLY TREATMENT = HEALTHIER LIFE:

• Today, it’s widely accepted that you should start taking ARVs as soon as you learn that you are HIV positive.

• Even if you don’t feel sick or have any symptoms the virus may be quietly causing havoc in your body.

We’re closed from 13 – 14 December 2019

Please note! The TEN81 Clinic and the OUT office will be closed this Friday afternoon (13 December) from 12pm, and will also not be open on Saturday 14 December.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Should you have an emergency, such as needing urgent PEP, please contact the Sediba Hope Clinic in central Pretoria on  012 323 1103 / 5938 / 5955. You can also go to your local clinic or Dischem pharmacy.
