QUESTIONS FOR WRITTEN REPLY
FRIDAY, 21 FEBRUARY 2014
196. Ms C K K Mosimane (Cope) to ask the Deputy President:
Whether he has commissioned a study to determine the reasons for the
increase in HIV prevalence in all provinces in the age group 15 to 49
years as shown in the results of a household survey conducted by the
Human Sciences Research Council (HSRC) in 2012; if not, why not; if
so, what are the relevant details? NW202E
Honourable Member, whilst we are aware that the Human Sciences Research
Council has conducted the study referred to in the question, the results of
the study have however, not been released. It is therefore not possible to
speculate on what may emerge.
Once the report is officially released, the findings will be interrogated
by the relevant structures such as the South African National AIDS Council
and the National Department of Health and as the Chair of SANAC, I will be
advised on this matter.
