Social Surveys Africa Research Director Tara Polzer Ngwato presents at the 8th South African AIDS Conference in Durban, presenting methodological innovations in a study conducted with Genesis Analytics for the Soul City Institute on the long term impacts of school-based HIV prevention programmes.

Sarah Magni of Genesis Analytics presents the findings of the Soul Buddyz Club study, which was conducted with Social Studies Africa. The most important finding was that young women who were members of a Soul Buddyz Club ten years ago were 2.92 times more likely to be HIV negative (based on test conducted during the study) compared with a control group of non-Buddyz.
