dc.description.abstractEnglish: This article examines some of the socio-economic and socio-cultural factors that may have shaped a social context conducive to the spread of HIV/AIDS in the Free State. Among the factors identified driving the spread of the disease in this province, low levels of socio-economic development, population mobility, and gender inequality are paramount. The article further reasons that the successful implementation of strategies aimed at HIV prevention, treatment and care, such as the Comprehensive Plan of 2003, hinges on the social context enhancing or inhibiting the implementation thereof. Lastly, it is reasoned that the issues of planning and strategy development for the prevention of HIV/AIDS should slot into broader social policy and planning at the national and provincial levels. Amongst others, this would include policy and planning that target those socio-economic and socio-cultural forces which are fuelling the spread of the disease.en_ZA
dc.description.abstractAfrikaans: Die artikel ondersoek sekere sosio-ekonomiese en sosio-kulturele faktore wat moontlik daartoe bygedra het om ’n sosiale konteks te vestig wat die verspreiding van MIV/VIGS in die Vrystaat in die hand werk. Onder die faktore wat geïdentifiseer is om die verspreiding van die siekte te bevorder, is lae vlakke van sosio-ekonomiese ontwikkeling, bevolkingsmobiliteit en geslagsongelykheid oorheersend. Die artikel redeneer voorts dat die suksesvolle implementering van strategieë wat gemik is op MIV-voorkoming, behandeling en sorg, soos die Komprehensiewe Plan van 2003, saamhang met die sosiale konteks wat die implementering daarvan òf bevorder òf strem. Laastens word daar geredeneer dat die kwessies van beplanning en strategie-ontwikkeling om MIV/VIGS te bestry, moet inskakel by die breër sosiale beleid en beplanning op nasionale en provinsiale vlak. Dit sou onder meer beleid en beplanning insluit wat daardie sosioekonomiese en sosio-kulturele kragte teiken wat die verspreiding van die siekte aanvuur.en_ZA
