Institutional Responses to HIV/AIDS from Institutions of Higher Education in the Southern Africa Development Community
This report compares, analyses, and summarises findings on institutional responses to HIV/AIDS from public institutions of higher education in the Southern African Development Community (SADC). By examining current responses this report aims to illustrate why and how higher education institutions must develop and sustain institutional responses to HIV/AIDS both individually and regionally, and also presents guidelines on how current gaps could be addressed and successes developed. In particular, the report examines institutional HIV/AIDS policies, workplace and peer education programmes, VCT and treatment services, and curriculum development and research that together or singly could constitute a university’s institutional response to HIV/AIDS.
