WANT to get married? First get an HIV test, advises health minister Brig. Jim Muhwezi.

Joyce Namutebi reports that Muhwezi said although testing of couples before marriage was not a government policy, religious bodies were encouraged to talk to couples to go for tests before making the commitment. He was on Friday commissioning the sh700m AIDS Information Centre (AIC) headquarters in Mengo, Kisenyi. Guests shared a huge cake baked in the design of the building.

Muhwezi said as a government policy on voluntary HIV testing would be made available and accessible.
