Call for submissions: A decade of antiretroviral therapy in the public sector

For the last 13 years, the Southern African Journal of HIV Medicine (SAJHIVMED) has provided state-of-the art updates and indepth local insights into both the population-level impact of the HIV epidemic and the management of HIV-infected and at-risk individuals across Southern Africa. The history of the Journal is intertwined with the expansion of access to antiretroviral therapy (ART) across South Africa and the region. As 2014 marks the 10-year anniversary of the public sector roll-out of ART services in South Africa, SAJHIVMED is planning a special edition to reflect on the lessons and celebrate the achievements during this time.

As part of this, SAJHIVMED is calling for submissions from healthcare workers, policy makers and researchers for this special edition. Contributions of all shapes and sizes are welcome. We are particularly interested in ‘reflections’ from clinicians on the ground – providing insight into the realities of delivering ART to increasing numbers of patients under difficult circumstances. These submissions can take the form of short editorials of 500 - 1 000 words commenting on individual experiences of providing HIV care and treatment services at all levels of care. If you are interested, please submit these pieces by 1 December 2013 via the Journal website (, or feel free to email me directly at the address below.
