Linking alcohol consumption and HIV risk – Stories from Galeshewe

Presented at the 6th Annual SA Aids Conference, Soul City’s Phuza Wize campaign highlighted the strong link between alcohol consumption and the spread of HIV.
“I met with a chick there and bought her ciders. Later in the evening, when I thought of going home, she was tipsy so she didn’t say no. I gone (sic) home with her – this girl didn’t know what was happening. In the morning this girl found herself in my arms not knowing was happened. When she asked me where she was, and I told her, she then started crying. (Male, 25-30 years)


The presentation focused on the alcohol advocacy project in Galeshewe, Northern Cape, a province with historically high levels of alcohol abuse.
