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.

Situational analysis of the socioeconomic conditions of orphans and vulnerable children in seven districts in Botswana

This report encompasses a situational analysis which was carried out in seven research sites in Botswana: Palapye, Letlhakeng, Kanye, Mahalapye, Molepolole, Serowe and Maun. Information was collected from orphans and vulnerable children (OVC), their caregivers, community members, community-based organisations (CBOs), government officials and community leaders; as well as members of non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and faith-based organisations (FBOs). The objectives of the study as outlined in this report, are to improve the living conditions of orphans and vulnerable children; to support households and families to cope with the increasing burden of care for affected and vulnerable children; to strengthen community-based support systems under which vulnerable children exist; and to build community-based systems for sustaining care and support to vulnerable children and their families.

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.
