HIV remains mainly an urban disease, with the majority of individuals diagnosed with HIV in 2013 residing in areas with 500,000 or more people. The increasing number of new HIV infections in many countries coupled with stagnating international assistance is increasing the need for more innovative funding mechanisms and new sources of domestic funding. With an estimated $22-24 billion needed to address the global HIV epidemic in 2015, a significant resources gap is anticipated. However, the Death Notification Forms Survey of 2010, which estimates a 93% completion rate, shows that out of a total of 543,856 deaths nationwide only 18,325 deaths were attributed to HIV/AIDS diseases. The effects of this slow and interrupted response are still being felt in a country that currently has the world’s largest HIV epidemic. Though certain groups are more at risk of HIV transmission than others, South Africa has a serious generalised epidemic affecting people from all sectors of society. For more, click here.
