Vol. 4: Healthy me, healthy us: A guide for community members about good health and staying healthy with chronic illness
Diseases like HIV and AIDS, tuberculosis (TB), high blood pressure (‘high-high’) and diabetes (‘sugar’) can make us very ill, and if we don’t get treatment, we can die from these illnesses.
South Africa has adopted the 90-90-90 principles for these diseases. This means that if 90% (nine out of 10 people) of people with HIV and TB know their status, get treated and stay on treatment, this will help prevent the spread of the diseases and keep people healthy.
