As the largest economy on the African continent, a model for peaceful post-conflict transition, a stable democracy, and as the vanguard in addressing HIV and AIDS, South Africa serves as an example for many African countries. However, to ensure its continued success, the Government of South Africa (GoSA) recognizes that it must address its internal challenges. The nation seeks to solve the most persistent of development challenges such as income inequality, delivery systems struggling to cope with an increasing number of needs, and growing vulnerable populations. Furthermore, South Africa must do this while reconciling and reforming post-Apartheid government systems to make them more accountable and effective.1 The rest of the African continent bears witness to South Africa’s transformation and can learn from its proven successful practices.
