HIV/AIDS in the transport sector of Southern African countries: A rapid assessment of cross-border regulations and formalities

This assessment is an output of the Project and is based on interviews conducted and extensive research gathered between 18 October and 12 November 2004. It assesses policies and practices relating to HIV/AIDS in transport and the harmonization of border-crossing procedures, with a focus on the nexus between these two complex areas. It concludes with a set of recommendations for implementing policies and activities to help prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS in the transport sector. The primary focus on Malawi, Mozambique, South Africa and Zimbabwe may serve as a starting point for addressing these issues in other Southern African countries and beyond.
