    Universities, the site of intellectual excellence, should stand in the forefront in fighting social taboos, gender inequalities and other barriers against a general social mobilisation for lifesaving changes in sexual relations.

Calls for mainstreaming the epidemic into research are yet to be heard. …

Data from multiple sources was used to ascertain prevalence rates, morbidity and mortality among students and staff. Prevalence rates and future projections on morbidity could not be ascertained for both students and staff because of the absence of reliable data. The main conclusion drawn is that mortality rates for industrial and junior support staff are almost as high as that of the national adult population (15-49 years). …

The Kelly report (Kelly 2001) as well as reports from workshops sponsored by the Association of Commonwealth Universities (ACU) and the South African Vice Chancellors' Association (SAUVCA) indicate the serious impact of the pandemic in terms of the fiscal situation, and in terms of the negative social impacts on university communities. …
