The DBE recently released its new National Policy on HIV, STIs and TB to support the prevention, treatment, care and support of all learners, educators, school support staff and officials in the basic education sector, in all public and independent primary and secondary schools in the Republic of South Africa. Compulsory Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) and the provision of Care Services are strategies included in the policy to realise a systematic and sustained response to HIV and TB.
