Exploring HIV Risk Perception in a Context of Antiretroviral Treatment: Results from a household survey in Khayletisha, Cape Town
HIV has attracted more political and financial attention than any other infectious disease in recent years, yet efforts to prevent further infection have mostly been ineffective. This is nowhere more obvious than in sub-Saharan Africa, which accounts for almost two-thirds of the 40.3 million people living with HIV and over three-quarters of the 3.1 million AIDS deaths worldwide.
Cost- effectiveness of antiretroviral treatment for HIV-positive adults
This report is the product of research into the cost-effectiveness and cost-utility of treatment for HIV-positive adults. The research was conducted in three HIVdedicated clinics in Khayelitsha, a township on the outskirts of Cape Town.
Providing HIV services at primary health care clinics in resource -poor settings
In February 2000 Doctors Without Borders (MSF) and the Health Department of the Province of the Western Cape initiated a comprehensive service for persons infected with HIV in Khayelitsha. In May 2001 this site became the first public sector service to provide antiretroviral therapy (ART) in South Africa.
