Success in South Africa

The Eastern Cape, where Africare's Injongo Yethu project is based, is South Africa’s second-largest and poorest province, with the third highest number of HIV infected people. Between 2005 and 2012, the project grew over ten-fold in investment due to its excellent performance, and during the 2012 budget year, technical support was expanded from 79 to 172 health facilities, and from 12 to 51 community-based organizations. By that time, Africare has also directly reached more than 1,022,290 beneficiaries through adult HIV care and treatment; HIV counseling and testing; Tuberculosis/HIV integration; prevention of mother to child transmission services; pediatric HIV care, treatment and support; home and community based care, including services for orphans and children made vulnerable by HIV; and health and community systems strengthening.
