S.A. CITIES RESPONSE TO HIV/AIDS Emerging Issues, Effective Mitigation Strategies and Suggestions for Implementation :Work-In-Progress: Towards A Long Term andamp; Sustainable Plan of Action

Purpose of Presentation : 

Purpose of Presentation Based on the report: Recognize the fact that a lot of innovative interventions are taking place at city level although not enough to change mind set and create a paradigm shift. Suggest andamp; inject new ways of tackling the cross-cutting issue of HIV/Aids at city level as opposed to (only within the) municipality. Propose a workable plan of action that will be driven (centrally) by the SACN and (locally) by HIV/Aids domain specialist in conjunction with city indispensable partners (CSO’s, business andamp; international community)



The Operational Context : 

The Operational Context Global, African andamp; Southern Africa By 2015, there will be 23 mega cities with populations in excess of 10 million. Of these, 19 will be in developing countries. By 2020, Africa will have 11 cities having more than 5 million inhabitants and more than 3000 cities with populations in excess of 20 000 (an increase of almost 300% from 1990) Africa’s urban population only constitutes 7% of the world urban population. Today, urban areas account for 34% of the total population Sub-Saharan Africa’s urban population will approach 440 million, or 46% of its projected total of 952 million by 2020. The average rate of urbanization in Africa is the highest in the world at 3.97% p.a.

SA cities and the national economy: 

SA cities and the national economy In SA, 20% of towns and cities produce 82% of GDP 80% of the economy’s manufacturing is concentrated in six metropolitan regions During the 1990s, 58% of all new economic growth took place in just 4% of the country’s area In the channel between Johannesburg and Tshwane which makes up just 0,2% of the country’s area, 24% of GGP growth in the 1990s took place There is a direct correlation coefficient between the level of urbanisation and GDP per capita, although lower in SA than in comparable developing economies Urban development is a national economic policy issue

Issues Emanating From The Report: 

Issues Emanating From The Report Individualized, but uncoordinated, efforts are making a remarkable difference in the fight against HIV/Aids – unfortunately this is a municipality perspective IDP is not necessarily driving city wide response to HIV/Aids esp. because of its nature (unintended consequence) andamp; therefore no mainstreaming Levels of urbanization is a major factor that drives the spread of HIV/Aids and related issues Shape and form of governing is changing, influenced to a large extent by relations with CSO and business Cornerstone Elements of a Comprehensive City Response Leadership, community mobilization, partnerships, integration, coordination, resource mobilization, inter-sector and cost recovery
