The Practicalities of Using Nevirapine for PMTCT in Under-Resourced Settings
The Practicalities of Using Nevirapine for PMTCT in Under-Resourced Settings
The case of Qaukeni District in the Eastern Cape Province, South Africa
Henry Fomundam, Thabang Mosala, Olive Shisana, Karl Peltzer, Thembiso Pakade, Pelisa Dana

Implementation of the programmes intended to prevent mother-to-child transmission of HIV/AIDS (PMTCT) is a major challenge, particularly in developing countries. Despite the controversies about Nevirapine (NVP) resistance, safety and efficacy, it is still widely acclaimed and used in most resource-limited countries because it is affordable, easy-to-use and practical. This study identifies the gaps in NVP use for PMTCT in a rural setting, where almost 42% of pregnant women have no access to healthcare facilities and deliver at home, with the support of traditional birth assistants or family members. As a result, many rural HIV-positive pregnant women deliver without the opportunity of PMTCT therapy provided by ante-natal clinics.

A Description Selected Interventions for the Care of Orphans and Vulnerable Children in Botswana, South Africa and Zimbabwe
A Description Selected Interventions for the Care of Orphans and Vulnerable Children in Botswana, South Africa and Zimbabwe
Funded by the WK Kellogg Foundation
Phetsile K Dlamini
If you are sitting in a South African school or university right now, you need to put aside 1948 and "Bantu Education" as a primary target of enquiry – these were little more than steps along a road that was already paved – and study when, where and how your institution came into being in the first place. This book joins the growing body of work (much of it by South African scholars) displacing the many mind-numbingly dull texts loaded with assumptions and logics that, in the case of South Africa, reify a simplified colonial explanation of the past. Generations of students, educators and policymakers have suffered enough through tedious though inaccurate history books disguised as dispassionate, impartial views of "the facts."

Financing South Africa's National Health System through National Health Insurance
Possibilities and Challenges (Colloquium Proceedings)
Compiled by Claire Botha and Michael Hendricks for the HSRC Policy Analysis Unit

The provision of universal access to healthcare, a right enshrined in the South African Constitution, is the responsibility of government.
