The impact of HIV/AIDS on the University of Botswana; developing a comprehensive strategic response
This report presents the findings of an impact assessment of HIV/AIDS on the University of Botswana and outlines a comprehensive prevention and support strategy.
The report is structured around the following set of questions:
1. What measures have been taken to date to prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS among both staff and students?
2. What has been the impact on student and staff to date?
3. What has been done to maintain staff productivity (in particular as a result of increased absenteeism and staff turnover)? 4. What should be done to minimise the impact of the epidemic during the next 10-15 years?
A mixed method design using quantitative and qualitative approaches and multiple techniques of gathering data that included focus group interviews, key informants' interviews, and document analysis was utilised in the study. Quantitative data was mainly obtained from the University data base sources.
