This report compares mechanisms for the financing of HIV/AIDS programmes in Botswana, Lesotho, Mozambique, South Africa, Swaziland and Zimbabwe. The research for this report was done as part of the work of Social Aspects of HIV/AIDS Research Alliance (SAHARA). SAHARA is a flexible network of partners working in the sub-Saharan African region.

Initiated by the HSRC SAHARA Research Programme, the alliance includes governments, NGOs, donors, researchers and academics. SAHARA secures funding for multi-country and multi-site studies, conducts research and monitors and evaluates HIV/AIDS programmes throughout the region. SAHARA is committed to using common research methods to allow the generation of knowledge and information to be rapidly shared. It is hoped that SAHARA's research will lead to evidence-based policy-making and implementation in the region.

2155
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 organizations, 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.
