[LISTEN] The Science Inside – HIV

Over seven million South Africans live with HIV, and we’re looking at the virus following last week’s International AIDS conference.

We visit the country’s first automatic pharmaceutical dispensing unit with Belinda Strydom from Right ePharmacy. You’ll hear about people who seem to cope with HIV, without antiretrovirals from Professor Thumbi Ndung’u, from UKZN.

In our weekly tech bite we ‘ll chat themometres and Instagram for doctors. And we talk about how women are still the highest at risk for HIV with Professor Gita Ramjee from the HIV Prevention Research Unit of the Medical Research Council.

The Science Inside team is Elna Schütz and DJ Keyez.

SciBraai, a proudly South African NPO dedicated to science journalism, communication and outreach. SciBraai began on Heritage Day 2013 - Anina Mumm and Engela Duvenage in 2013 launched the website, scibraai.co.za, to feature stories about South African research, technology and innovation, and the people behind the discoveries. This blog welcomes all South Africans to go behind the scenes of local science and exploration endeavors. It’s a place to share stories about the scientists themselves and the interesting, little-known activities that are often left out of research journals. A place to learn more about the stuff that makes South African science and its people tick. A place to feel inspired about what South Africans are discovering on home soil and abroad. Because local is lekker, no matter what language you use. SciBraai's following has grown in the past years, and we are now on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. We've also begun organising real-life braai's where we share round-the-fire stories about South African science and scientists.
