The 2017 HIV and Health Study is the fifth wave of a series of cross-sectional surveys undertaken by a research consortium led by the Human Sciences Research Council (HSRC) every few years.

The consortium includes local researchers from the South African Medical Research Council, National Institute of Communicable Diseases, Global Clinical & Viral Laboratories, University of Cape Town and international researchers from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, UNAIDS, and UNICEF.

The report includes novel methodologies, innovative research and important advances in assessment that provide a crucial reference in one book to all working on HIV in South Africa and globally.

This study is key in maintaining surveillance of HIV infection and behaviour in South Africa, and to obtain a better understanding of factors driving the HIV epidemic.

The South African National HIV Prevalence, Incidence, Behaviour and Communication Survey, 2017 is crucial for government, policy makers and all stakeholders who work towards reducing the HIV epidemic in the country and reaching the UNAIDS 90-90-90 targets.

It is a must-read for researchers who want to understand the HIV dynamics in South Africa.

Workplace Policies in Public Education
A review focusing on HIV/AIDS

2086

Policy governs many aspects of the professional lives of educators. It is also central to their and the sector's response to crises such as the HIV/AIDS epidemic. As such policy can contribute directly to curtailing the attrition of educators, by encouraging and providing protection against threats such as HIV/AIDS, and by creating a positive and supportive working environment. This study examines workplace and HIV/AIDS policies from the Department of Education (DoE) and the HIV/AIDS policies of two trade unions, as part of a broader study looking at the attrition of educators. The policies themselves were found to be well written and if implemented, would create a good environment for educators. A number of successes were noted, particularly in terms of the transformation of education structures. The findings suggest that problems are centered on a lack of policy implementation, resulting from disjunctures between the national office and provincial and district offices, as well as a lack of resources and inadequate planning and preparation for implementation.

The impact of and responses to HIV/AIDS in the private security and legal services industry in South Africa

2226

The generalised nature of the HIV/AIDS epidemic in South Africa means that it impacts unevenly on businesses. Companies respond in varied ways, and with varied means, to the challenges posed by the epidemic. Assessment of the impacts of HIV/AIDS, and of the responses of companies to it, are critical to help mitigate the impact of the epidemic on productivity, labour costs, and the supply of skills.
