South Africa lies in the epicentre of the HIV/AIDS pandemic and carries one sixth of the worldwide HIV/AIDS burden, equaling 5.6 million infected South Africans in 2011. Since the emergence of HIV/AIDS the country has been challenged to take political
action and to develop policies and guidelines to combat the disease. This critical review analyzes the process of HIV/AIDS related policy development and their implementation from 1990-2012 and looks into disparities to WHO recommendations. In order to link policy changes to a measurable indicator, the indicators “ART coverage” and “enrolment ratio” were utilized for the time period from 1999 - 2012.
