South African National HIV Survey (SABSSM V) is on the road

Sixty thousand participants will take part in the fifth National HIV and Health Study

The Human Sciences Research Council (HSRC) will visit 60 000 South Africans to request their participation in the country’s fifth HIV and Health study. Professor Leickness Simbayi, Deputy CEO for Research at the HSRC and overall Principal Investigator of the study, says field workers will be visiting selected households across South Africa.

“The HSRC has put together 72 teams of trained field workers, dressed in HSRC bibs and carrying HSRC-issued identification cards, who will be interviewing a total of 60 000 individuals of all ages from randomly pre-selected households in towns, cities and villages across the entire country. Participation in the survey is voluntary and it is important for as many people who are approached to take part in order for the results to be representative of the whole country” he says.

Early assessments indicate that the survey which commenced in two of the provinces in December 2016 and January 2017 is going well and support from the public is gaining momentum.
