HEAIDS featured in new SARRAH short film

The Higher Education and Training HIV/AIDS Programme is featured in a new short movie entitled "Changing Lives" that has recently been published online by SARRAH.

SARRAH provides technical advice, funding and support to strategic national initiatives to strengthen South Africa’s response to HIV and health. Its main focus is support for the Ministry and National Department of Health in renewed efforts to increase life expectancy, decrease maternal and child mortality, combat HIV and AIDS and TB, and strengthen the health system.

 To show achievements of the government’s ambitious health reform programme which has been supported by SARRAH for the past four years, the programme produced the short movie "Changing Lives."Through interviews with the Minister and Director-General of Health and senior officials of the Department of Health, the film charts progress towards National Health Insurance, strengthening primary health care and improving the quality of health services. It visits programmes in five provinces where health workers and ordinary people speak about what these health reforms mean for them.

One of the programmes that is featured in the movie is the HEAIDS First Things First (HIV/STI/TB) Campaign. The SARRAH movie producers visited the HEAIDS Team at the launch of the campaign at Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University in Port Elizabeth.
