This chapter presents the progress and challenges in sexually transmitted infections, HIV and AIDS, and tuberculosis in South Africa. Issues such as the epidemiology and management of sexually transmitted infections are presented, as well as a number of interventions, which need to be carried out in order to address current problems. The new HIV & AIDS and STI National Strategic Plan for South Africa, 2007-2011, which is the national response to the epidemic is presented. The linkages between HIV and tuberculosis are discussed, as well as recommendations around the integration and collaboration between tuberculosis and HIV and AIDS activities. The chapter concludes with suggestions on implementing control programmes for these diseases, as well as ideas around strengthening effective interventions.
