ENGLISH ABSTRACT: This research aims at unpacking the phenomenon of HIV and AIDS mainstreaming in Municipal Integrated development plans, but it also acknowledges that differently resourced municipalities have different understanding of mainstreaming. Not only this, depending on the impact and the level of expertise available at municipal management level, interpretations of these impacts have different budgetary, planning and implementation responses. Given the multitude of research and insights already done by reputable institutions, I decided to confine the assessment to seven municipalities consisting of two Metros, and two district and three local municipalities in four provinces and the analysis of nine integrated development plans focusing on the 2010-2011 financial year end. The intention was to concentrate on municipalities that could provide a general impression of activities, budgets, and resource constraints given the location of the municipality and its differing resource base. What resulted are findings which speak to a colossal of challenges faced by municipalities as they attempt to fulfill the service delivery mandate while at the same time endeavour to address HIV and AIDS issues and its related impacts.

AFRIKAANSE OPSOMMING: Die doel van die navorsing was om te bepaal op welke wyse MIV/Vigs programme op groot skaal uitgerol kan word binne Munisipale gebiede. Dit studie het ook van die vertrekpunt uitgegaan dat verskillende Munisipaliteite verskille behoeftes het wanneer dit kom by die grootskaalse implementering van MIV-programme. Die vlakke van kennis binne die verskillende munisiplaiteit speel ook 'n rol in die suksesvolle implemetering van hierdie programme. Baie navorsing is reeds op hierdie gebied gedoen en sekere van die bevindings van vorige studies word in hierdie navorsingsprojek bespreek. Hierdie studie is beperk to sewe munisipaliteite, insluitend twee Metros, en twee distrikte en drie plaaslike munisipaliteite in vier provinsies in Suid-Afrika. Die planne vir 2011 -2012 binne nege munisipaliteite is ook vir die doel van hierdie studie ontleed. Die studie is beperk tot die algemene indruk van aktiwiteite, begrotings and infrastruktuurbeperkings van die munisipaliteite in die verskillende gebiede. Resultate het baie groot uitdagings aangedui. Indien munisipaliteite die uitdagings van MIV/Vigs suksesvol wil aanspreek sal daadwerklik stappe dringend geneem moet word.
