This study set out to explore whether and how HIV and AIDS have been integrated into curricula at UP over a period of 15 years and what the future of HIV Curriculum Integration (HCI) might be. Recent student protests served to challenge the relevance of HCI, and emphasise the importance of considering how best to approach HCI, and how to relate HCI to issues such as power, race, gender and institutional culture. Amongst the issues highlighted by the report are: the importance of context; the role of policy; broader curriculum challenges and contestation; questions regarding appropriate models of HCI; and the critical role of leadership in addressing HCI.
