The Southern Africa HIV and AIDS Regional Exchange (SHARE) is pleased to present the second issue of the project’s research digest.
Many people living with HIV in South Africa (SA) are not aware of their seropositive status and are diagnosed late during the course of HIV infection. These individuals do not obtain the full benefit from available HIV care and treatment services.
The extraordinary scale-up of antiretroviral therapy (ART) is expected to reduce the rate of new HIV infections at the population level. In this study, we calculated the incidence of HIV for males and females using data from a complete South African population.
Alcohol and other drug use is prevalent among peri-urban, South African adolescents. We identified correlates of alcohol and other drug use by gender among adolescents (age = 16-18 years; N = 822) in peri-urban Johannesburg.
Global experts recognize the need to transform conventional models of healthcare to create adolescent responsive health systems.
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) present a groundbreaking global development agenda to protect the most vulnerable.
