We welcome Dr. Linda Mandikiyana-Chirimuta at Newlands Clinic. She is working as a paediatrist, making sure that children and adolescents are treated at the best. “I wanted to become a doctor from a very young age, and I am very happy to be able to help the little ones who have to cope with HIV”, says Dr. Mandikiyana-Chirimuta. Along with her work as clinician, the paediatrist is part of the trainer team which teaches doctors and nurses in specialised HIV and AIDS treatment at Newlands Clinic Training Centre. In total, five doctors and 19 nurses specialised in HIV and AIDS care for some 6,000 patients.
