“The visit of the Swiss foreign minister is a vote of confidence”

The Newlands Clinic team will not forget 9 January 2019 any time soon, as it was the day that Swiss Federal Councillor Ignazio Cassis toured our clinic as part of his visit to southern Africa. The foreign minister appeared impressed and emphasised the important contribution that Newlands Clinic is making to the fight against HIV/AIDS. After the visit he went on to meet with Zimbabwean Minister of Health and Child Care Obadiah Moyo.
