Q.

Looking for this kind of Service in the region of Hammanskraal

My sister defaulted from taking her medicine and she is now refusing any kind of help from anyone. After several previous defaults ,we were able to win her to the clinic and once injected she would be fine. But now, this time around she is totally stubborn about anything and looks like even the local assistants have thrown the towel.Is there a Doctor that you know or counselling team that you can refer me to in this vicinity. She is residing in the village Makapanstad to be exact.

Your sister needs extensive counselling. It sounds like she has not accepted her HIV status and does not understand the important of taking antiretroviral treatment properly. Your sister needs some serious counselling. Once she has accepted her status then everything else will fall into place. Naledi Mqhayi is a very good clinical psychologist in Pretoria. She is at Louis Pasteur Hospital.
