The role of governments in the fight against HIV/AIDS in Southern Africa: a case study of South Africa.

by Mngomezulu, Skhumbuzo Julius

Abstract (Summary)
HIV/AIDS is a deadly disease that needs to be addressed with immediate effect before serious damage can occur. Because the government has a responsibility over the health of its citizens, everybody expects the government to take a lead in the fight against this epidemic and from the look of things the government's strategies are not making the desired impact on the epidemic. The author attempted to highlight that the South African government has not played a satisfactory role in the fight against this pandemic, which threatens to alter history to a degree not seen in the world.
