South Africa’s Progress Against HIV/AIDS Seeing Benefits

In a post in the Council on Foreign Relation’s “Africa in Transition” blog, John Campbell, the Ralph Bunche Senior Fellow for Africa Policy Studies, discusses South Africa’s progress in HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment. “…The payoff can be seen in South Africa’s significant increase in life expectancy, from 54 years in 2005 to 60 years in 2011. South Africa still carries a heavy HIV/AIDS burden, and will do so for a long time. But, the South African government’s campaigns against HIV/AIDS are a major achievement” (2/26).
