    This paper presents the results of a cross-sectional biomedical and social survey, conducted in a major gold mining centre with a high prevalence of HIV infection. It also provides the baseline data for a comprehensive ...
  • Maharaj, V (2012-10)
    In this presentation the author outlines the steps taken in developing a South African indigenous plant-based microbicide to prevent HIV infection in women.
  • John, MJ; Thomas, S (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2012-08)
    The scarcity of natural polymers during the world war years led to the development of synthetic polymers like nylon, acrylic, neoprene, styrene-butadiene rubber (SBR) and polyethylene. The increasing popularity of synthetic ...
  • De Wit, MP; Swilling, M; Musango, JK (2008-08-11)
    Cities in developing countries often have to face a multiplicity of external shocks that impact on their operations. These changes include increased rates of migration from the rural poor, natural resource shocks such as ...
  • Weinert, HH (CSIR, 1980)
    Naturally occurring materials, such as rock and soil, constitute a significant portion of the materials content and cost of a road. Most textbooks dealing with road construction materials, however, are mainly concerned ...
  • Clauss, KA (2009-02-20)
    The book brings together the results of research spread over a number of reports and papers during the past 27 years and to create a guide for soil stabilization work. Its aim is to provide sufficient knowledge of soil/lime ...
  • Rakitianskaia, AS; Olivier, MS; Cooper, Antony K (2011-08)
    Online social spaces have become very popular in the past couple of decades. With the great numbers of users in the online environments it becomes obvious that the human factor plays an important role in the social structure ...
  • De Vries, M; Gerber, A; Van der Merwe, A (Springer, 2014-05)
