HIV/AIDS and Human Development South Africa 1998


The country’s first report focuses on the devastating impact of HIV/AIDS on the new South Africa and its potential to reverse recent gains in human development. The main message is one of hope that the further spread of the epidemic can be contained if national leadership combined with the active participation of people living with HIV/AIDs and all other civil society and public service partners channel their resources to fight the scourge. The report highlights the fact that, with South Africa’s history of social mobilization against the apartheid system, it could equally address and overcome the threat of HIV and AIDS.
