This publication has essential, current and scientific information about research and HIV treatment updates with particular implications for clinical practice.

The Society is the largest special interest group within the South African Medical Association (SAMA). It is also the largest HIV interest group in the world.

Since its inception in 1997, with a membership of approximately 250 members, the Southern African HIV Clinician’s Society has grown to a membership of over 15,000 in the sub-Saharan region and internationally – a clear recognition of the services and support provided.
