Institutional responses to HIV/AIDS from institutions of higher education in the Southern African Development Community

Van Wyk, Barry; Pieterse, Jimmy

Abstract:

This report compares, analyses, and summarises findings on institutional responses to
HIV/AIDS from public institutions of higher education in the Southern African
Development Community (SADC). By examining current responses this report aims
to illustrate why and how higher education institutions must develop and sustain
institutional responses to HIV/AIDS both individually and regionally, and also
presents guidelines on how current gaps could be addressed and successes developed.
In particular, the report examines institutional HIV/AIDS policies, workplace and
peer education programmes, VCT and treatment services, and curriculum
development and research that together or singly could constitute a university’s
institutional response to HIV/AIDS.

This report also offers recommendations on the following lines to assist with future
conduct:
• Regional integration and coordination
• Dedicated human resources
• Sustained monitoring & evaluation and research
• Improved capacity-building
• Meeting institutional responsibilities
• Applying interdisciplinary approaches
• Mainstreamed curriculum development
• Providing technical support, and
• Expanded regional consultation
