Qualitative assessment of facilitators and barriers to HIV programme implementation by community health workers in Mopani district, South Africa
South Africa has implemented a community-based HIV programme (CBHP) in its primary healthcare (PHC) re-engineering strategy that aims to improve public healthcare delivery.

We conducted an exploratory study to determine the facilitators and barriers to successful implementation of this CBHP in rural Mopani District, South Africa.

In an ideal world, numerous stakeholders contribute to policy development, including policymakers, implementers and, as importantly, the individuals and communities who will be affected by the policies. All too often, this broad-based input simply doesn’t happen, which contributes to policies that are not well designed or effectively implemented.
The Advancing Partners & Communities (APC) project recently launched a new monthly e-newsletter featuring APC's work with community-based health programs in more than 30 countries worldwide. APC focuses on leadership, capacity building, and grant-making for community-based family planning and health systems.
