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.

The Health of Our Educators
A focus on HIV/AIDS in South African public schools

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.

South Africa is undergoing a process of epidemiological transition from infectious to non‐communicable diseases (NCDs). Reliable estimates of population health parameters are therefore essential to understand the nature of the changing disease profile and translate such information into effective health promotion and disease prevention programmes.
