The 1st case of HIV in SA was detected nearly 25 years ago in 1985. Since then, HIV has grown to pandemic proportions and in 2009 it was estimated that over 5 million South Africans were living with HIV. Sadly, there have already been estimated 2.5million deaths due to HIV in South Africa.

The objective of this publication is not to make HIV an epidemic of secrecy and to hinder disclosure, but to create as quickly as possible and in as many settings as possible a socila environment where trust and understanding lay the foundation for openness and acceptance.
