As one of the mandates of local AIDS councils (LACs) is to advise government on policy issues related to HIV and AIDS, political representation in the LAC helps ensure that crucial inputs of AIDS councils reach the agenda of the municipal council. This is one example of the type of local government leadership required to ensure widespread and sustainable responses to HIV and AIDS at the local level. The vital importance of municipal political leadership in the response to HIV and AIDS is also one of the key messages in the "SALGA Country Guideline for Local Government on HIV and AIDS".
