In 2002, the Human Sciences Research Council was commissioned by the WK Kellogg Foundation to develop and implement a five-year intervention project focusing on orphans and vulnerable children (OVC) in southern Africa. In collaboration with several partner organisations, the project currently focuses on how children, families and communities 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 Kellogg OVC Intervention Project from 2002 to 2005.

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.
