Since 2003, Dr Hugo Tempelman and his team have been treating HIV patients in the Ndlovu Medical Centre with combination antiretroviral therapy (cART). The cART suppresses the viral replication and reconstitutes the immune system which makes patients less susceptible to dangerous infections. cART increases life expectancy and significantly improve the quality and longevity of life to normal.
Ndlovu Medical Centre is a treatment partner in the fight against Tuberculosis from its inception in 1994. The Department of Health and Ndlovu Medical Centre have maintained a formal relationship for over 20 years whereby they supplied Ndlovu Medical Centre with drugs, lab tests and the possibility to treat Tuberculosis in the community.
Cervical Cancer ManagementCervical Cancer is caused by the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) and is very well to manage if found early through screening programmes.
