Abstract

In 2005, the Human Sciences Research Council (HSRC) of South Africa published a research report titled: The Health of Our Educators: A focus on HIV/AIDS in South African public schools (2004/2005). The findings of the report were shocking as the health of our educators was a source of concern because of the HIV prevalence recorded. The results documented that 12.7% of the educators who gave specimens for HIV testing were HIV positive. This included educators in all provinces, and educators of all ages, sex and racial groups.1
