This paper presents the occasion to consider the need and benefit of evaluating HIV/AIDS programmes within South African universities. The emergence of the need for workplace policy has resulted in a barrage of HIV workplace policies saturating the workplace. The International Labour Organisation and Higher Education HIV/AIDS Programme (HEAIDS) have made recommendations as to points, which policy and decision makers should consider in the development of national policies and programmes on HIV/AIDS. Many Higher Education Institution policy makers have yet to question the need and benefits of an HIV/AIDS programme. This paper further suggests that an HIV/AIDS programme should be followed by an evaluation that would determine the effectiveness of such programme.
