Broadcasting the Pandemic
Broadcasting the Pandemic
Rebecca Hodes
Broadcasting the Pandemic tells the story of a South African television show, Beat It! Created during the aspirational years of the political transition in which the broadcast media were poised to democratize the airwaves, Beat It! was first screened on public television in 1999 and developed into one of the most powerful health education initiatives in contemporary history. Broadcasting the Pandemic traces the show’s evolution, exploring how Beat It! used the medium of television to inform its viewers about HIV at a time of increasingly rapid infection rates, but in which government education and treatment campaigns were largely absent.

Doctors in a Divided Society
Doctors in a Divided Society
The profession and education of medical practitioners in South Africa
Mignonne Breier, Angelique Wildschut
Many of the goals of South Africa’s new democracy depend on the production of professionals who have not only the knowledge and skills to make our country globally competitive, but also a commitment to working and living here. Despite numerous reforms, the South African health system, ten years into democracy, remains divided: first world private care that ranks with middle income countries internationally at the one end, and at the other extreme, in the rural public sector in particular, conditions that are superior only to the poorest of African countries. Much work has been done to change medical school curricula in line with the primary health-care focus of government policy, and international trends towards problem-based learning. The student profile in medical schools is now not only more representative of the demographics of South Africa, but also reveals a significant increase in female students. Whether these students will stay in the country after graduating, and serve where they are needed most, remains to be seen.

Families and Households in Post-apartheid South Africa
Families and Households in Post-apartheid South Africa
Socio-demographic Perspectives
Acheampong Yaw Amoateng, Tim B Heaton
Given that the institution of the family interfaces with other social institutions in any society, the political, social and economic transformations resulting through colonialism and apartheid in South Africa are likely to have affected families and their residential dimension, the household, for all cultural groups. But studies of families and households before the democratic transition in 1994 were limited by the political economy of apartheid in general, and more specifically, by inadequate quantitative socio-economic data.
