In the clinics around the country, the Ministry (of Health) does not have drugs to treat STIs where three of four drugs are required for treatment the clinic might only get one.

And then they provide the one dosage before requesting the clients to go and buy from the pharmacy three or four drugs to complement the one that they will have received from the clinic.

STIs are said to be prevalent at Jumbo Mine where artisanal miners and sex workers have bemoaned the shortage of the drugs.

Other hotspots in the province where STIs are rife include Caesar Mine, Bare, Nzvimbo and Hermiston Farm.
