Workplace Policies in Public Education
Workplace Policies in Public Education
A review focusing on HIV/AIDS
Leickness Simbayi, Donald Skinner, Lebogang Letlape, Khangelani Zuma (eds.)

Policy governs many aspects of the professional lives of educators. It is also central to their and the sector's response to crises such as the HIV/AIDS epidemic. As such policy can contribute directly to curtailing the attrition of educators, by encouraging and providing protection against threats such as HIV/AIDS, and by creating a positive and supportive working environment. This study examines workplace and HIV/AIDS policies from the Department of Education (DoE) and the HIV/AIDS policies of two trade unions, as part of a broader study looking at the attrition of educators. The policies themselves were found to be well written and if implemented, would create a good environment for educators. A number of successes were noted, particularly in terms of the transformation of education structures. The findings suggest that problems are centered on a lack of policy implementation, resulting from disjunctures between the national office and provincial and district offices, as well as a lack of resources and inadequate planning and preparation for implementation.

South African National HIV Prevalence, Incidence and Behaviour Survey, 2012
South African National HIV Prevalence, Incidence and Behaviour Survey, 2012
Shisana O, Rehle T, Simbayi LC, Zuma K, Jooste S et al
Currently 6.4 million people in South Africa live with HIV, this figure represents a quarter of the burden of HIV infections in sub-Saharan Africa and 18 per cent of the global burden. With this view, the South African National HIV Prevalence, Incidence and Behaviour Survey, 2012 is a crucial report for government, policy makers and other stakeholders as they work towards reducing the HIV epidemic in South Africa.
This 2012 HIV survey is the fourth in the series of national population-based surveys. The survey was conducted from December 2011 to November 2012. As with previous surveys, it was designed to investigate the overall HIV prevalence, incidence and behaviour as well as social determinants that drive the epidemic. It also served to collect data to help monitor the National Strategic Plan 2007–2011 and set the baseline for the 2012–2016 NSP. This report is a must-read and essential for researchers who want to understand the HIV dynamics in South Africa.

South African case study on social exclusion
South African case study on social exclusion
Laetitia Rispel, Boitumelo Molomo, Sellinah Dumela

Social exclusion is a dynamic, multi-dimensional phenomenon. Driven by unequal power relationships, it works to exclude groups of people in particular contexts from engaging fully in community or social life. Many of South Africa's post-apartheid policies and programmes have been directed at correcting historical injustices responsible for social exclusion, yet inequalities remain rampant.

Situational analysis of the socioeconomic conditions of orphans and vulnerable children in seven districts in Botswana
Situational analysis of the socioeconomic conditions of orphans and vulnerable children in seven districts in Botswana
Edited by: GN Tsheko

This report encompasses a situational analysis which was carried out in seven research sites in Botswana: Palapye, Letlhakeng, Kanye, Mahalapye, Molepolole, Serowe and Maun. Information was collected from orphans and vulnerable children (OVC), their caregivers, community members, community-based organisations (CBOs), government officials and community leaders; as well as members of non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and faith-based organisations (FBOs). The objectives of the study as outlined in this report, are to improve the living conditions of orphans and vulnerable children; to support households and families to cope with the increasing burden of care for affected and vulnerable children; to strengthen community-based support systems under which vulnerable children exist; and to build community-based systems for sustaining care and support to vulnerable children and their families.

Situational analysis of orphaned and vulnerable children in eight Zimbabwean districts
Situational analysis of orphaned and vulnerable children in eight Zimbabwean districts
Brian Chandiwana (ed)

In response to the AIDS epidemic and poverty, the Zimbabwean government and other organisations are implementing various programmes aimed at assisting orphans and vulnerable children (OVC) in the eight districts surveyed. It is clearly important to have an audit of the social services and support structures available for OVC in the eight districts and to have a clear understanding of the situation of OVC including their needs and concerns in order to have proper prioritisation, designing and evaluation of programmes that are aimed at supporting the affected children.

Sexual Abuse of Young Children in Southern Africa
Sexual Abuse of Young Children in Southern Africa
Linda Richter, Andrew Dawes, Craig Higson-Smith (eds)

In this volume, experts – including service providers, therapists, children’s advocates, and the research community – summarise and evaluate the problem of the sexual abuse of prepubescent children in southern Africa. It is the first attempt to synthesise southern African research, treatment and policy literature on the topic. The book confronts the realities of sexual abuse, and its representation in the press. It presents the main findings concerning the individual, socio-economic and sociocultural correlates of sexual abuse, and covers legal and policy responses to the problem. It also presents accounts of interventions drawn from South Africa, Mozambique and Zimbabwe.
