The presidency has released a new government report on how SA has fared since 1994, but not all of its claims are correct.

For this, he pointed us to anof his from 2012. In it, Johnson estimated that there were 47,500 people on antiretroviral treatment in 2004. Of these, only 9,600 were receiving their treatment through the public sector. The vast majority of patients received their treatment from the private sector or NGO programmes.Johnson said his 2012 estimate of the number of people on antiretroviral treatment in South Africa in 2004 differed from the newer estimate due to a change in methodology.

“The methods we have used to estimate these numbers have changed over time. Previously we were just taking the raw data and we weren’t trying to fit any kind of statistical model to it,” he explained. “What we have done in the more recent paper is to try to fit smooth time trends to the data. That process has led to some change in the numbers.”from the department of health shows that there were 4,629,831 people on antiretroviral treatment as of March 31 2019.

Ramaphosa was incorrect about the number of people on antiretroviral treatment in the public health sector in 2004. –
