The intersection between mental health and HIV/AIDS is relatively undeveloped. This report draws on the perspectives and experiences of academics, non-governmental workers and government officials, from both developed and developing countries, who gathered at a meeting in March 2003. The aim of the meeting was to start to develop a better understanding of the complex ways in which HIV/AIDS affects people's mental health and the implications this has for those infected by the disease, their families and friends as well as for society as a whole.

Through several large-scale research projects, the Social Aspects of HIV/AIDS and Health (SAHA) Research Programme of the HSRC aims to generate knowledge that can be used to prevent HIV infection, enhance care for people with HIV/AIDS and mitigate the impact of the pandemic on all sectors of society.

Strengthening surveillance strategies

In the last decade, South Africa has made significant progress in reducing child and maternal mortality rates.
