LE TAPE, Andre Rhyno; CARBONATTO, Charlene Laurence  and  GEYER, Lourens Stephan. Evaluation of an HIV and AIDS social intervention programme for the youth in the Northern Cape, South Africa. Social work (Stellenbosch. Online) [online]. 2020, vol.56, n.4, pp.459-477. ISSN 2312-7198.

The study focuses on a qualitative evaluation of the Soul City Social Intervention Programme (SCP) on HIV and AIDS targeted at the youth in the Northern Cape province, South Africa. The evaluation was implemented through a qualitative study, operationalised through an instrumental case study design. Data were collected through semi-structured interviews with 13 SCP field workers. Thematic analysis crystallised into two themes. Theme 1 focuses on the limitations regarding the implementation of the SCP, while theme 2 highlights the evaluation of the SCP from the field workers' perspective. Recommendations are made to improve the effectiveness of the programme.

Keywords : evaluation; HIV and AIDS; social intervention programme; youth; field workers; Soul City Institute; Northern Cape; South Africa.
