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.
