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.

HIV/AIDS, Stigma and Children
A literature review

HIV/AIDS-related stigma has been recognised as a key problem that needs to be addressed in HIV/AIDS interventions with adults. The literature on children and HIV/AIDS is extensive, as is the literature on HIV/AIDS related stigma, but specific research on HIV/AIDS-related stigma and children is relatively sparse. This title provides a review of the available literature in this regard.

A Description Selected Interventions for the Care of Orphans and Vulnerable Children in Botswana, South Africa and Zimbabwe
Funded by the WK Kellogg Foundation

If you are sitting in a South African school or university right now, you need to put aside 1948 and "Bantu Education" as a primary target of enquiry – these were little more than steps along a road that was already paved – and study when, where and how your institution came into being in the first place. This book joins the growing body of work (much of it by South African scholars) displacing the many mind-numbingly dull texts loaded with assumptions and logics that, in the case of South Africa, reify a simplified colonial explanation of the past. Generations of students, educators and policymakers have suffered enough through tedious though inaccurate history books disguised as dispassionate, impartial views of "the facts."
