KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) province in South Africa is reducing waiting times for life-prolonging antiretroviral (ARV) drugs to treat HIV patients by establishing mobile units of doctors.

The KZN health department has formed roving teams, consisting of doctors and nurses, to visit clinics to enrol patients in ARV drugs, according www.iol.co.za.

The KZN health deparment intends to implement its programme to cut unnecessary waiting time for ARVs in other districts following its success at Edendale Hospital in Pietermaritzburg.

KZN has the highest number of HIV-positive people in South Africa, with a third of all people on antiretroviral treatment in South Africa living in the province.
