A preliminary investigation into the links between violence against women and HIV/AIDS in South Africa.

The investigation undertook a national scan to:

  • identify civil society and government’s focus on links between gender violence and HIV
  • Identify gaps in current initiatives
  • Identify current initiatives that can be built on and strengthened

The report documents the findings and recommends that more research is needed so that a comprehensive response  aimed at addressing the links between violence against women and HIV and AIDS can be developed
