Thank you very much, Chairperson. I would like to thank the question from the hon Matsemela. We are finalising the draft PMTCT - prevention of mother-to-child transmission - policy guidelines which are in line with the expectations of the National Strategic Plan for South Africa 2007-2011. May I also take this opportunity to say to this House that even when I was ill I was part of the formulation of that strategy, very actively so. We are currently finalising the policy guidelines which guide implementers on how to administer dual therapy. A stakeholders' meeting to review the final draft of the guidelines with HIV and Aids experts, obstetricians and paediatricians is planned for 11 September 2007.
As I said, we would have gone a long way if indeed we had been allowed to do what we had thought was correct, and that was the establishment of 18 sites in the country - one rural and one urban in each province - in order to ensure the efficacy and effectiveness of monotherapy. Of course, as you know, the Constitutional Court has ruled that we should roll out the monotherapy and this is why it is taking us some time because now we are doing the work that we should have done a long time ago. I'm sure we are learning lessons from this. Thank you.
