This came to light when men who accompanied their wives for Prevention of Mother to Child Transmission PMTCT counselling session were turned back without undergoing HIV testing at Lundazi Urban Clinic.
Some of the men confirmed that they had been turned back without testing for HIV because of lack of testing kits.

Dr. Zulu indicated that the district has had no HIV testing kits for the past two weeks.
He however, explained that a new consignment of testing kits was already in the province in Chipata and that soon the district will receive the kits.
