Since HIV was discovered in 1981, a significant body of socio-behavioral research has emerged that attempts to provide deepened understanding of HIV in sociocultural contexts. Researchers since the 1990s have realized that in African contexts, HIV and AIDS are better understood not from a biomedical perspective but rather from sociocultural perspectives.
Recognising that in Southern Africa, the limited rights for women and gender-based violence have been key factors driving the HIV epidemic, SAfAIDS, in collaboration with Oxfam International, have initiated a project to explore best practices in address gender, culture and HIV. Through the project, SAfAIDS will develop a booklet on gender, culture and HIV Best Practices in ZImbabwe .
