Publication year:

Publication details: 
Pretoria, HIVOS, 2015

This review takes its point of departure in a position rooted in upholding human
rights, equality, and freedom – particularly in support for the rights of LGBTI people and communities. Its intention is to analyze the current science through a frame which combines these principles, with respect and admiration for the strength and resilience of many Southern African people facing a daily struggle. The first section looks at the approach and methodology used. Then the current legal environment. Partnerships and exual behaviour then follows as well as HIV among trans & intersex people among other topics.
