In 2002, the Human Science Research Concil was commisioned by the WK Kellog Foundation to develop and implement a five-year intervention project focusing on orphans and vulnerable chidren (OVC) in southern Africa. In collaboration with several partner organisations, the project currently focuses on how children, families in Botswana, South Africa and Zimbabwe are coping with the impact of HIV/AIDS. The aim of the project is to develop models of best practise so as to enhance and improve support structures for OVC in the southern African region as a whole.

This report forms part of a series that examines the work undertaken as part of the Kellog OVC Intervention Project from 2002 - 2005

South African National HIV Prevalence, Incidence and Behaviour Survey, 2012

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 20072011 and set the baseline for the 20122016 NSP. This report is a must-read and essential for researchers who want to understand the HIV dynamics in South Africa.

Families and Households in Post-apartheid South Africa
Socio-demographic Perspectives

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.
