Abstract: The Aids in Context Conference focused on the historical, social and cultural context of HIV/AIDS, and was held at the University of the Witwatersrand (Wits) in Johannesburg from 4-8 April 2001. The conference arose as part of a process undertaken by the AIDS Consortium, Soul City and the Wits History Workshop to encourage further research, the wider dissemination of existing work and comparative study - especially in relation to the rest of Africa. The conference aimed to promote interdisciplinary research on key topics. The conference proceedings comprised a keynote address by Justice Edwin Cameron (Supreme Court Judge active in the fight for the rights of gay and HIV positive South Africans), parallel sessions (totalling 26 over three days) and panel discussions on Media and HIV/AIDS and Prevention and Behaviour change.
