Welcome to The Aurum Institute - A Leading African Health Impact Organisation

The Aurum Institute

A Leading Healthcare Organisation

The POP INN Wellness Centres, launched in October 2019, offer free sexual health services to men who have sex with men and transgender women in Tembisa, Mbombela, Pietermaritzburg and Durban. The centres provide a safe space for key population communities to come, get tested for HIV, STIs and TB, talk to a counsellor and get PrEP and ART. The centres also provide free wifi, access to computers and a safe space to sit and talk.

MSM and TG women are at higher risk of contracting HIV. Incidences of stigma are also greater in a normal clinic environment. We created POP INN centres to cater for the specific needs of our MSM and TG communities, to eliminate fear and stigma around accessing care.

We offer HIV, STI and TB screening, access to Free PrEP, ART and counselling.

We partner with Aurum and CHAPS at mass testing events, to encourage MSM and TG members of the community to come and get tested.
