Every child has a right to quality healthcare. CHIVA Africa is dedicated to improving healthcare for children and adolescents living with HIV. We work with health facilities to provide on-site mentoring and teaching to improve the skills and knowledge of Government healthcare workers on the frontline of South Africa’s HIV epidemic. By building the capacity of healthcare workers, we support their efforts to achieve a long and healthy life for all children and adolescents.
As a result of the collaboration between CHIVA Africa and our local partners, thousands of HIV-infected children are living longer, healthier lives.
“The Sub-Districts in the District have benefited tremendously from CHIVA South Africa specialist multi-disciplinary team visits. It is evident that through targeted interventions, as identified by your team, there has been steady improvement in the management of our Paediatric HIV programme. The Health Professionals respond particularly well to the mentoring and coaching approach which your team employs. The fact that you provide this support on site, is another benefit to the system, in that our health professionals are not removed as in the case of training, and they are empowered in their personal practice, whilst rendering care to the community.”
