We have always been, and always will be a partnership organisation. Our partnership approach has seen us develop strong working relationships with DOH at province, district and sub-district level in KZN, Eastern Cape and North West Province ensuring that their aims are considered in the development, delivery and evaluation of our programmes. Our partnership approach has extended to other institutions working in our field including peer NGOs, medical institutions, funders, and universities.
Our Lead Partners include:
Since our inception in 2004, our lead partner has been the Provincial Department of Health in KwaZulu-Natal. The focus of all our work is guided by the relevant directorates within the Department, ensuring we remain relevant and dedicated to addressing areas of greatest need.
We have worked in Dr Kenneth Kaunda District of the North West Province at the request of the Provincial Department of Health since 2010 through funding provided by the Nuffield Foundation that completes at the end of 2015. We are working to secure further funding to continue our work in 2016 and beyond
We work to support the educational efforts of the Nelson R Mandela Medical School at the University of KwaZulu-Natal through contributing to the delivery of their HIV, child and adolescent health-related courses and conferences
Our Funders include:
JAKAMaR Trust has been our major supporter since our inception in 2004. Their support has funded the core of our operation in South Africa as well as funding our paediatric programme in Eastern Cape and KwaZulu Natal.
With the support of The Nuffield Foundation we were able to support the implementation of the Department of Health’s down-referral plan from hospitals to Primary Health Clinics (PHCs) in the Dr. Kenneth Kaunda District (DKK) of the Northwest Province (NWP). This district has the highest HIV prevalence in the province.
The David and Elaine Potter Foundation
