In contrast with the HIV and AIDS policy formulation trend in first decade of attaining democracy in South Africa, recent policy and legislation regarding HIV and AIDS show great determination by Government in reversing the epidemic. The South African Government’s present collaboration with civil society demonstrates an understanding that the fight against HIV and AIDS is a shared responsibility. While paying attention to various groups, women, children and men in particular, this desk review paper argues that South Africa has adopted sound HIV and AIDS policy and legislation but its main challenge remains that of implementation.
Keywords: HIV and AIDS; policy, legislation, ARVs, PMTCT, Circumcision.
