Welcome to AIDS Consortium Website
The AIDS Consortium NPC (AC) was founded in 1992 and is one of the largest non-government organisation (NGO) networks in South Africa, serving over 200 affiliated members in the HIV, AIDS and Human Rights sectors. AC served as the South African Linking Organisation of the International HIV/AIDS Alliance (IHAA), and currently represents its network on the South African National AIDS Council (SANAC) as the NGO Sector Leader, and is an accredited training service provider.
The AIDS Consortium NPC mobilises resources to strengthen communities and all sectors to meaningfully and measurably curtail the epidemic, through impacting on the lives of vulnerable populations, in particular, those whose vulnerability puts them at higher risk of contracting HIV.
The national affiliate network of community based organisations (CBOs) is the vehicle through which the Consortium works to implement targeted interventions in communities to address a multitude of developmental issues, including education on, and prevention of, HIV & TB, behaviour change communication and interventions relating to sexual risk, substance abuse, and human rights awareness raising. The network consists of funded and non-funded entities motivated by the needs of the community within which they reside, and the drive to see their situation change for the better.
This is complimented by a collaborative network which consists of a broader array of entities with knowledge and technical skills that can enhance the skills of the affiliate network, thus positively influencing the way in which the affiliate network responds to HIV in their community.
As a human rights organisation the development of grassroot capacity in advocacy and community engagement is central to our work. As the NGO sector leader in the South African National AIDS Council (SANAC), the AIDS Consortium NPC ensure that its network member positions are represented and that they continue to influence HIV policy and strategies in South Africa.
AIDS Consortium NPC provides a number of training modules geared toward the development of, in particular, grassroot civil society organisations. A number of tailored modules are also available upon for corporate wellness programmes. For more information contact firstname.lastname@example.org
There are over 200 affiliated community based organisations and NGOs throughwhich the AIDS Consortium NPC delivers targeted, measurable, and meaningful interventions across South Africa. Click here to find out more on the Affiliate Programme or to become an affiliate.
The AIDS Consortium was established in 1992 by Justice Edwin Cameron, a constitutional court Judge of South Africa and other HIV and AIDS activists. Its objective was to promote a non-discriminatory response to HIV and AIDS based on people’s basic human rights as enshrined in the South African constitution.
The founding document of The AIDS Consortium was the AIDS Charter, which sets out the basic human rights of people living with HIV and AIDS. This document remains central to the basis of the work of The AIDS Consortium; The AC was established as an independent NGO in Braamfontein at its first AGM in 1998 where 225 members ratified the constitution.
In July 2000 AC registered as a membership based Section 21 company bringing together a network of over 1000 AIDS Service Organisations (ASO's) and individuals addressing the AIDS pandemic in Southern Africa.
Our Non-Profit Organisation registration number is 029-839-NPO
