Dr Sibongiseni Dhlomo, Minister of Health for KwaZulu-Natal, showed his support for the Star for Life programme during a drop-in visit on the 12th February. The minister met with Directors of Star For Life, Mr Pierre Delvaux, Mr Siphile Mdaka and Ms Khosi Jiyane (Programme Manager) to learn more about the programme.

Since Star for Life is operating in a high- HIV/AIDS prevalence area, the programme has risen in eminence within the department of Health and has become an important intervention in the region; hence the drop-in visit of the minister.
Dr Dhlomo was updated on the progress of Star for Life and briefed on the progress and results so far.
