This chapter reviews South Africa's response to its HIV epidemic. Within the current macroeconomic context, the public sector will find itself increasingly constrained in its ability to meet existing needs, let alone new demands generated by the HIV epidemic. There is a need to increase the portion of GDP spent on health, social and other support services. Critically, where operative the profound link between AIDS and poverty must be recognized and broken, and there is an urgent need for a national multisectoral response that goes well beyond the current public health response and engages the private sector and employers.
