HIV is a chronic condition where treatment is available and must be taken for life. SAMWUMED covers the treatment, pathology (blood) monitoring and doctor consultations in order to keep all HIV positive beneficiaries healthy.


SAMWUMED works with Aid for AIDS (AFA) to give members the best advice on how to manage their HIV status and the use of their HIV medication, blood monitoring tests and other associated medication.
