Health Economic and HIV/AIDS Research Division (HEARD) is a self-funded, applied research unit based at the University of KwaZulu-Natal in Durban. HEARD conducts a range of research-from pure to applied- seeking to support all those intent on designing interventions to reduce the HIV pandemic in all sectors  in  the  SADC and East Africa region. Its research agenda is driven by current issues and is aimed at producing knowledge and evidence critical to informed policies and actions.

Innovations in HIV Prevention in Africa

Ahead of the 21st International AIDS Conference (IAC) to be held in Durban, South Africa, in July 2016, HEARD, in partnership with UNAIDS, UNDP, Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency, the World Bank and the Southern African AIDS Trust, is seeking innovative contributions to a book project on ‘Prevention’. 

The aim of the project is to bring together leading social scientists, public health experts, policymakers and the HIV-affected community to translate recent momentous advances into action that will address HIV prevention gaps in east and southern Africa. The outcome document will form part of a pre-conference meeting at the IAC in Durban, 2016.  

The organisations welcome social science-based contributions offering new thinking, fresh approaches or evidence-based findings to enhance and accelerate HIV prevention.
