Centre tackles HIV/Aids among truckers

first_img12 May 2011A new Trucking Wellness Centre based along the busy truck route in Epping, Cape Town will provide HIV/Aids counselling, testing and condoms to truck drivers using the route. Such centres are planned for major trucking routes throughout South Africa.Services extended to womenSpeaking at the launch of the centre this week, Health Minister Aaron Motsoaledi said the services would also be extended to women and young girls who may be at risk of getting sexually transmitted infections (STIs).All services will be provided after hours in a confidential setting to secure the dignity of the user.Motsoaledi said the department was fully aware of the dangers that long-distance truck drivers were exposed to as a result of being away from their spouses for long periods, and that it was important to provide them with primary healthcare services including counselling to minimise the risks to themselves and their spouses.“I commend the South African Business Coalition on HIV/Aids and Mercedes-Benz SA for working with us in this regard,” Motsoaledi said.High-risk groupsLast year, Motsoaledi visited India to learn about integrating high-risk groups such as long-distance truck drivers into HIV/Aids prevention programmes.“What we saw in India forced us to think much more broadly in our fight against HIV/Aids and rolling out of primary healthcare services,” he said.Motsoaledi has since made a commitment to launch such wellness centres on major trucking routes throughout the country.Source: BuaNewslast_img read more

BidModo Takes the Pain Out of B2B Classifieds

first_imgTop Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting If you’ve ever used Craigslist before (and who hasn’t?) then you know it can be amazingly useful for some things and a terrible waste of time for others. If you’re a small business looking for an accountant or the best and cheapest way to outsource your HR, for example, then Craigslist might be asking for trouble. Austin-based startup BidModo is launching a public beta today that hopes to simplify this process for small businesses and provide them with better information to make better decisions, instead of simply relying on word of mouth referrals.BidModo is a bit like the offspring of Yelp, the Better Business Bureau and Craigslist, but much shinier. In reality, comparing it to Craigslist is a bit of a disservice, as it offers so much more than text classified ads and email responses.Instead of just putting an ad out there and getting back simple replies, the responses come from registered companies and are organized on a dashboard. Each company has an on-site profile, containing contact information, a company history, provided services, previous clients, certificates and licenses, and a list of references. Each company also has a rating card, which shows how that business rates with its clients on ten different characteristics, from bid timeliness to industry knowledge. If you’ve ever used something like Craigslist, then you realize how hard, or even impossible, getting all of this information would be. You would practically need to hire a private investigator. For end users – those posting the job – the service is entirely free and provides the user with information about bidders, vendor ratings and a dashboard comparing bids. Vendors only pay for selected leads. A vendor dashboard provides information on ROI, monthly sales data, ratings feedback and industry stats. And part of BidModo’s focus is on local business, so service requests only come from the region, which is something we think people, wherever they are, will stand behind.“Prior to BidModo, I ran a video production company,” said founder Toby Schwartz in a press release. “I would regularly hear of companies in town turning to New York or San Francisco to hire for their video needs. And I can’t tell you how many times I’d meet people in Austin who would comment that they wished they knew I was here.”Currently, BidiModo is live nationally, with over 80 cities and connections in more than 100 different categories.
