National Aids Council Discourages Use Of Herbs Together With ARVs

The National Aids Council writes:

A commendable number of people have been tested and know their status, but some have fallen prey to network marketers and street doctors and are not following advice given tothem by health personnel.

It has come to the National Aids Council’s attention that there are drygs and herbs being sold in the country as cures for HIV and Aids. Some of these drugs are being smuggled into the country and other are locally made. These have not been tested and approved by experts, It is not advisable to take them.

We do not encourage the use of hherbs or traditional medicines together with antiretroviral drugs (ARVs). ARVs on their own are very effective in the treatment of HIV infections and they do not need any assistance from herbs or other medicines provided they are taken correctly as per advice from the health workers.
