Research or Treatment: Priorities in South Africa's HIV/AIDS Funding

"Worldwide, South Africa is the only country that makes a significant contribution to AIDS-related research while also having a high HIV prevalence rate. Following the discovery of anti-retroviral drugs, HIV/AIDS-related research is stabilizing in developed countries in favour of other health-related outputs. Conversely, South Africa has been increasing its HIV/AIDS research over the last decade. As it grapples with treating its infected population and advancing scientific research, South Africa could benefit from international scientific collaboration and new multinational science centres."
