The South African National AIDS Council emphasises that success in tackling HIV / AIDS depends on leadership at every level of society, as well as mobilisation and co-operation in all sectors including government, health care workers and civil society (SANAC, 2006). This may be an acknowledgement that South Africa's response to HIV / AIDS has been inadequate to effectively control the epidemic. It points to insufficient dialogue between the government and the private sector, and among health care workers in general. In particular, there has been inadequate attention given to the importance of private pharmacies in an integrated approach to HIV / AIDS services.
