San Francisco Chronicle Article Examines Debate Surrounding Impact of South Africa's loveLife HIV/AIDS Prevention Campaign

August 15, 2005

An article in the San Francisco Chronicle on Sunday examined the debate surrounding loveLife, South Africa's national HIV prevention program for youth and one of the largest HIV/AIDS prevention programs in the world. The program, which began in 1999, is funded by the Kaiser Family Foundation, the South African government, the Global Fund To Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and other groups. The campaign aims to reduce the number of HIV infections among youth in the country, a rate that "remains disturbingly high." The World Health Organization and the World Bank say loveLife has been discussed as a model for HIV/AIDS prevention campaigns, while some critics cited in the article question the effectiveness of the campaign and say more research is needed to gauge its impact (Singer, San Francisco Chronicle, 8/14).
