In South Africa since 1996.

Despite national prevention campaigns and significant biomedical innovations, South Africa still has the 4th highest HIV prevalence rate in the world. And adolescent girls are especially at risk—facing an infection rate 2.5x higher than males of the same age.

For 20 years, our work in South Africa has ensured access to quality health services for people of all ages living with HIV, delivered in an environment free of stigma or discrimination. See how change starts here.


What We Do in South Africa

  • Focus on the unique sexual and reproductive health needs of adolescents—the largest generation of young people in history—as they come of age
  • Reduce HIV infection rates of South African youth and prevent mother-to-child transmission among young HIV-positive mothers
  • Promote safer sex practices and guarantee accessibility to quality, integrated services for people living with HIV, delivered in a social environment that is free of stigma and discrimination
  • Improve service delivery to those living with HIV by building the capacity of public sector service providers, facility managers, peer educators, and community organizations
