Building contexts that support effective community responses to HIV/AIDS: a South African Case Study discusses a health-enabling social environment, and some of the strategies currently being used to build social contexts to support effective HIV/AIDS management in southern Africa. It specifically focused on residents of Entabeni, a remote rural community in South Africa where 43 percent of pregnant women are HIV positive. The aim of this document is to illustrate and share contextual changes that will enable more effective community-led HIV/AIDS management in an isolated area where people have little or no access to formal health or welfare support, and where HIV/AIDS is heavily stigmatized.
