Abstract: South Africa has a serious HIV/AIDS (Human Immunodeficiency Virus/Acquired Immuno Deficiency Syndrome) epidemic, with millions of its people living with the disease. For the country to respond effectively to prevent new infections and provide care and treatment to those who are already living with HIV/AIDS, it is vital to have accurate data and a comprehensive understanding of the epidemic.
