Abstract: HIV and AIDS is a huge threat to development of every layer of society. Its impacts are felt on all levels. To address this complex problem, strong leadership, commitment and action are needed from all levels of government. It is increasingly being recognised that the involvement of local government in particular is crucial. Several local governments in the Netherlands are offering assistance to municipalities in Namibia and South Africa in strengthening their capacities to respond to HIV and AIDS. This brochure shows how this is being done, with eight examples of twinning projects between Namibian, South African and Dutch municipalities.
