The Health of Our Educators
A focus on HIV/AIDS in South African public schools
Olive Shisana, Karl Peltzer, Nompumelelo Zungu-Dirwayi, Julia Louw

Education is an essential ingredient of the socio-economic development of any country, and educators are a vital part of any nation's educational system. If educators are sick, or absent from school, or leave the profession, the nation stands to lose. Yet the health status of our educators may go unknown. Prior to this report, there were no primary level South African national data assessing the ill-health and attrition of educators. Rumours about their ill-health and reasons for attrition abounded. It is for this reason that the Education Labour Relations Council (ELRC) decided to commission the HSRC-led consortium to conduct this nation-wide research assessing the health status and attrition of our educators, with a focus on HIV/AIDS and its determinants.

HIV-Positive Educators in South African Public Schools
HIV-Positive Educators in South African Public Schools
Predictions for prophylaxis and antiretroviral therapy
Thomas Rehle, Olive Shisana, Deborah Glencross, Mark Colvin

The HIV/AIDS epidemic in South Africa is severe and it is to be expected that various sectors in South African society, including the education sector, will be affected negatively. It is well known that those living with the virus are able to continue being productive for years. However, once illness sets in and the immune system is compromised, absenteeism for both short and long periods may become common and without antiretroviral therapy (ARV) intervention, many will die. In our schools, the illness and death of one educator has serious implications for other educators, the school and learners. Increased workload, loss of skills and experience, overcrowded classes and learner adjustment problems are just some of the consequences that can be expected.
