CHIVA South Africa was created to support the roll-out of HIV treatment programme in 2004 in partnership with the South African Department of Health. Paediatric HIV specialists in the UK, who had been treating children with HIV for decades, developing invaluable practical skills and common sense tips to successfully treat children long-term, felt sharing their expertise with their South African colleagues was vital. And so, teams of UK Healthcare professionals regularly travelled to South Africa to train, mentor and share their knowledge with South African colleagues.
We have core criteria which all volunteers we recruit must meet and select specific volunteers based on the needs of our partners and programme. You can find out more on our Volunteer With Us page.
