Description: At the start of 2002, the Anti-Privatisation Forum (APF) established a dedicated research sub-committee to carry out participatory research training activities involving community members on key issues and campaigns. After the first research project involving prepaid water meters in Orange Farm, titled 'Nothing for Mahala', the sub-committee proceeded to undertake and produce two reports in 2006; this one on prepaid meters in Phiri (Soweto) and the other on the prevalence and impact of HIV/AIDS in Phiri and the Sol Platjie informal settlement on the West Rand. Although the APF did not have the resources to produce thousands of copies of these reports, they were published and distributed fairly widely in both hard copy and electronic formats to community members, academics, researchers and other organisations. The PPM research report provided important material for the ensuing Phiri-based constitutional rights legal case on water and prepaid meters.
