Missing link in ‘Tipima’ HIV test catch phrase

Dear editor,
I WISH also to join the masses on the talk on HIV mandatory testing or is it routine testing.

The government pronouncement has generated interesting reactions from members of the public.
We enjoy jokes saying “TIPIMA” whether it is mocking or encouraging everyone to face the test.
We need to ask the government to assure the general public that people will be treated according to the illness presented to the doctor first before requesting the patient to undergo the HIV test.
This is the missing link in the information that is coming to the public.
