Southern Africa HIV and AIDS Information Dissemination Service (SAfAIDS), with support from the Open Society Initiative for Southern Africa (OSISA), commissioned country studies in Zambia and the Kingdom of Swaziland in 2008. The aim of the study was to examine the extent to which these countries were implementing HIV and AIDS prevention, treatment, care and support (impact mitigation) strategies and services, in line with major international commitments and declarations to which they are signatories. This report highlights SAfAIDS' findings on the implementation of regional and international HIV prevention, treatment, care and support conventions and declarations in Swaziland and Zambia. The assessment, which used qualitative methods to collect data on various HIV and AIDS services, used literature review and consultative meetings and key informant interviews with key stakeholders and focus group discussions with users of services and their representative organisations.
