The issues surrounding the provision of antiretroviral therapies, in particular the provision of a single dose of nevirapine to pregnant mothers and newborn infants to interrupt mother-to-child transmission (MTCT) of HIV, have filled the pages of our popular press. We in the Southern African HIV Clinicians Society believe that the time for research has passed and the time for implementation is at hand, to which end the Society issued a strongly worded press release in early February 2002. In so doing we added our voice to other strident voices emanating from the medical community, particularly those of Professor James McIntyre and Dr Glenda Gray. It is with particular pride that I would like to extend my congratulations to McIntyre and Gray on their receipt of the 2002 Nelson Mandela Award for Health and Human Rights.
