HIV/AIDS has become the major cause of disease burden in South Africa, and arguably, the single most important phenomenon that will shape future demographic, health and development trends in the country. South Africa is reported to have the highest HIV infection rate in the world. Given the enormous impact of HIV/AIDS epidemic, intensified efforts are required by both governments and civil societies to prevent further spread and to mitigate its impact. In an attempt to strengthen its policy and programmatic support on HIV/AIDS to six countries South Africa, Botswana, Lesotho, Mozambique, Swaziland and Zimbabwe, the W.K. Kellogg Foundation commissioned the Human Sciences Research Council, through the Centre for Applied Social Studies (CASS), the University of Zimbabwe; to review the South African national HIV/AIDS policy and to examine its implementation at district level particularly at the sites where the Foundation is operating in these countries.
