Abstract

Southern Africa is severely hit by the HIV and AIDS pandemic. Botswana leads the list of high prevalence countries. Since 2002, the government of Botswana provides free antiretroviral therapy for all eligible HIV and AIDS patients. The article describes the HIV/AIDS background and ARV programme. It explores why this ARV-scheme, although sophisticated and successful, may have only limited potential to serve as role model. In Botswana medical infrastructure had already been well established and served as an entry point for ARV schemes. Also, political and economic “good governance” helped in gaining international support. However, the new social transformation processes induced by the ARV programme need to be monitored closely. - (IfL)
