HIV care: Is the problem is finding a doctor or getting your GP to follow your CD4 count? I assume it isn't because you're requesting more frequent CD4 than normal. Maybe instead of GP, consider an HIV or infectious diseases specialty doctor or clinic. I would think these would be available in a city the size of Bloemfontein. Doing it through a pharmacy doesn't seem like a good approach. Good luck!
