HIV tests withdrawn as a precaution

South Africa

Johannesburg - The recall of about 500 000 HIV testing kits was a precaution that should not deter South Africans from undergoing HIV tests, experts and government officials said on Monday.

Reports that some HIV testing kits in South Africa were from a company whose products had been flagged should be seen in context, said SA National Aids Council deputy chairman Mark Heywood.

“It's still safe to take an HIV test,” he said.

Health Minister Dr Aaron Motsoaledi said the 500 000 kits had been recalled only as a “precaution”. - Sapa
