Non-government action groups or initiatives

There are a number of civic action groups, organizations and movements that operate in the Health Sector in South Africa.


The following are a few them. For a directory that is relevant to your area, do a websearch in your area or visit any of the community Beehive sites in Johannesburg, Cape Town or Durban.


African Health Leadership Initiative

The African Health Leadership Initiative works to bridge the implementation gap between policy formulation and frontline action. It stimulates progress on national health priorities through project-based action, locally-grounded scaling and in-country leadership development. The Initiative recognizes and augments capacity that exists within national health systems – across Ministries of Health and among other government officials, clinicians, community-based service providers and within civil society and the private sector.


Treatment Action Campaign


A unified quality health care system which provides equal access to HIV prevention and treatment services for all people


To ensure that every person living with HIV has access to quality comprehensive prevention and treatment services to live a healthy life

Strategic Approach

TAC will achieve its mission by – 

  • securing comprehensive treatment and prevention services in selected focus districts as a model for other districts
  • to inform and support national advocacy efforts through its branches, providing a platform for people to mobilise and organise around HIV and related health rights.

Desmond Tutu HIV Foundation

The Desmond Tutu HIV Foundation is based in Cape Town, South Africa and is run in association with the Desmond Tutu HIV Centre at the University of Cape Town's Institute of Infectious Disease and Molecular Medicine. The Foundation operates community sites in greater Cape Town's Nyanga and Masiphumelele districts.
