Words of wisdom, comfort and support

There are many benefits to knowing one’s HIV status. If you’re negative, it’s an added incentive to protect yourself. If you have HIV, it’s important to avoid being re-infected and to learn how to live positively. This is where good counselling comes in. One organisation offering this service is ATICC, the AIDS Training, Information and Counselling Centre. Sue Valentine visited their offices in Plumstead, Cape Town. Telephone numbers for ATICC offices: Cape Town (021) 797-3327 Johannesburg (011) 725-6711/2; Durban: (031) 300-3104 Port Elizabeth (041) 506-1249
