Local level responses to HIV/AIDS in South Africa reviews the role of local level responses in HIV prevention and AIDS responses in South Africa and how these might be optimised.  The significance of 'locality' in HIV/AIDS responses is examined as well as two main ways in which local responses to HIV/AIDS have been promoted in South Africa (through civil society initiatives and local government).  The case is made for a locality-based approach to HIV/AIDS and then an overview of the state of local level responses is given.
