Contextualising structural factors in HIV prevention

To coincide with the 20th International AIDS Congress, the African Journal of AIDS Research has just published a new special issue entitled “Contextualising structural factors in HIV prevention.” The special issue, in Volume 13 (2) 2014, focuses on Structural Drivers of HIV and is based on a series of papers drawn from the 3rd Structural Drivers of HIV conference (Cape Town, December, 2013).

Papers in this issue address the importance of understanding broader social, cultural, economic and environmental factors affecting HIV transmission, and lives lived with HIV, for children and adults, women and men, in Africa and elsewhere. We also consider the contextual complexities of adapting and implementing HIV and AIDS interventions to different settings.

The issue is freely available until end of July 2014. View the Table of Contents and access articles from this issue online here.

Perhaps the most important change, in terms of bringing the Journal to a wider audience, has been its publishing in collaboration with the NISC (Pty) Ltd.

The biggest development in the history of Quaestiones Mathematicae was the association with NISC and to have the journal running in a very stable way without severe financial concerns.

Thank you for the rare experience of a set of proofs on which I can find nothing to correct!

It has been an enriching experience working with such enthusiastic and professional people at NISC who have become more friends than business partners over the years.

Since 1995, NISC has systematically built up competence and the necessary capacity in all aspects of publishing high-level research journals, with the professionalism needed to flourish in the increasingly competitive world of international research publications. No other publisher in South Africa commands the necessary technical skills, experience, competence, enthusiasm and resources to the same degree as NISC, in my view.
