The Rhodes University Health Care Centre, HIV & Staff Wellness Office in partnership with the Department of Health (DoH), Jabez Centre and 
FPD will be facilitating the first session of its "First Things First Campaign" during the week of the 10-14 February 2020

This drive will include a free test for HIV, screening for TB, STIs, Blood Sugar, Blood Pressure (BP), Nutrition Assessment (BMI), Family Planning and Papanicolaou test (Pap test) also known as Pap smear. Pap smears will be done at the Health Care Centre.

Testing stations will be at the Bicycle Lawns and Steve Biko Lawns (8h30 - 16h00).  First Things First aims to help students, as future leaders, to be responsible, get tested for HIV, know their status and commit to behaviour that would benefit them and  their peers.

Students and staff members are encouraged to take advantage of this unique campaign.

Do the right thing and be health wise!
