Gender, HIV and AIDS: Tracking the trends, progress and tribulations in South Africa

On 1 July 2009, the Socio-Economic Rights Project hosted a seminar on Gender, HIV and AIDS: Tracking the trends, progress and tribulations in South Africa.

The seminar was meant to take stock of recent developments and to reflect on progress, setbacks and challenges on dealing with HIV/AIDS in women’s context. The seminar was also meant to foster conversation between the different categories of stake holders involved in work and efforts around HIV/AIDS in South Africa. Participants included civil society organisations, health care practitioners and academics.

Thus the seminar looked at socio-medical, legal and policy perspectives. Topics discussed related to the double burden of HIV and Tuberculosis, food security and nutrition, sex work and legal reform and the HIV/Aids care burden on women. Recent findings on the HIV/AIDS prevalence in South Africa were also discussed and reflected upon.
