This report and policy brief summarises the overarching principles, key findings and suggested policy options that emerged from rapporteur reports of conference proceedings. Detailed presentations may be viewed at www.sahara.org.za. A total of 25 million of the 38 million people infected with HIV globally at the end of 2003 were Africans. There appears to be a stabilisation in HIV prevalence, but this is mainly due to a rise in AIDS deaths and a continued increase in new infections. Prevalence is still rising in some countries such as Madagascar and Swaziland, and is declining nationwide in Uganda.
