Background Screening, brief intervention, and referral to treatment (SBIRT) for risky substance use is infrequently included in routine healthcare in low-resourced settings. A SBIRT programme, adopted by the Western Cape provincial government within an alcohol harm reduction strategy, employed various implementation strategies executed by a diverse team to translate an evidence-based intervention into services at three demonstration sites before broader programme scale-up. This paper evaluates t...

Tobacco-attributable deaths in South Africa have increased since 1990, yet data are scanty from healthcare settings. Internationally, emergency centre (EC) visits are increasingly utilised as opportunities for health risk behaviour screening and intervention, but this is not the case in South Africa. Effective advocacy for these services requires data on the prevalence and correlates of tobacco use among South African EC patients. The study objectives were to investigate tobacco prevalence and a...

Cell line immortalisation is a growing component of African genomics research and biobanking. However, little is known about the factors influencing consent to cell line creation and immortalisation in African research settings. We contribute to addressing this gap by exploring three questions in a sample of Xhosa participants recruited for a South African psychiatric genomics study: First, what proportion of participants consented to cell line storage? Second, what were predictors of this conse...

Intimate partner violence (IPV) during pregnancy is prevalent across the world, but more so in low- and middle-income countries. It is associated with adverse outcomes for mothers and infants. This study sought to determine the prevalence and predictors of IPV among pregnant women attending one midwife and obstetrics unit (MOU) in the Western Cape, South Africa. A convenience sample of 150 pregnant women was recruited. Data were collected using several self-report measures concerning the history...
