Action to prevent HIV: An interview with Dr Kaymarlin Govender

In a videoed conversation, HEARD's research director discusses the 3rd Conference on the Structural Drivers of HIV.

STRIVE co-hosted the conference with HEARD (the Health Economics and HIV/AIDS Research Division at the University of KwaZulu-Natal) and the HIV and development group at the University of East Anglia, on 5 and 6 December 2013.

Dr Kaymarlin Govender of HEARD describes the main focus of the gathering: implementing structural measures and programmes to prevent HIV. Meeting in Cape Town, the conference provided a platform for Southern African research and experiences. For promising biomedical measures such as medical male circumcision to prove effective in practice, explains Dr Govender, it is crucial to address structural and social questions around norms, institutions, poverty and rights.

HEARD thanks the following for their support for the conference:

  • SIDA
  • Dr Steve Forsythe of the International AIDS and Economic Network
