Governing AIDS through aid to civil society

Global solutions meet local problems in Sub-Saharan Africa


The HIV/AIDS epidemic is one of the major political challenges of our time. Out of the 33 million people living with HIV/AIDS globally, two thirds live in Sub-Saharan Africa. The aim of the project is to analyse how local civil society is influenced by the enormous inflow of foreign aid, and how power is negotiated in the donor-civil society relationship in three countries in Sub-Saharan Africa: Rwanda, Mozambique and South Africa. The main research questions are: How do international donor organizations influence AIDS work in the civil societies of Rwanda, Mozambique and South Africa? How are power relations articulated, reproduced, resisted and/or transcended in the relationships between donors and civil society actors involved in AIDS work?
