The Ubuntu Institute, in partnership with the Gordon Institute of Business Science (GIBS), will launch a SADC-wide study on traditional leadership responses to HIV/AIDS. The study launches on June 10, 2009. Non-governmental organizations, private sector and government/public sector guests have been invited. This SADC study is the first of kind, looking at the role of traditional leaders and their role in helping eradicate HIV/AIDS in Africa.

“This is groundbreaking. We hope our study will contribute to policy development and spearhead ways that traditional leaders and other community leadership structures, like African religious groups, can be included in designing and implementing HIV/AIDS interventions in the region,” said Ubuntu CEO, Prince Cedza Dlamini.
