The following call for participants was released today by SANAC's Women's Sector:

The Women's sector in SANAC wishes to hold a consultation workshop on the impact of Male Circumcision on Women. The aim is to assess and articulate what such a policy needs to entail from the planning stages of formulation through to implementation, to reflect a consideration of the reality and the needs of the lives of women from birth to death.

We have set a target of having at least 8 organisations represented per province.

Details of this workshop will be circulated but organisations- especially those that work on SRH and prevention are requested to indicate interest and motivate why they should be selected to come.

We request organisations to circulate this invite to other organisations in the sector, as we want representation to be as widespread as possible.

Organisations that work in rural areas specifically will be prioritised.

Further information regarding proposed dates and logistics will follow.

These kinds of women's issues are very important. There are certainly many issues that need to be discussed concerning bacterial vaginosis and other such concerns.

Earlier this month, the

Earlier this month, the South African National AIDS Council (SANAC) included TB as an official priority to be incorporated into all of its work. This was a clear attempt to combine broad-based responses to HIV/TB. But despite this positive development, the TB strategic plan of the Southern African Development Community (SADC) for 2007 – 2015, has devoted only 1% of its budget to TB/HIV collaborative activities. By failing to establish closer ties between the treatment of HIV and TB, resources will be wasted and access to treatment for both diseases rendered more difficult. This will be to the detriment of patient convenience, treatment adherence and ultimately disease control. For instance, HIV and TB are frequently treated at different healthcare sites in Southern Africa, with patients having to travel vast distances between the HIV and TB facilities at which they may receive treatment.
