Where We Work

Countries in Southern Africa have some of the highest HIV/AIDS infection rates in the world, but human resources to address the epidemic are often limited in numbers, training, and logical distribution. The Southern Africa Human Capacity Development (SA-HCD) Coalition worked to improve the delivery of HIV/AIDS services by strengthening the capacity of health workers, policy-makers and planners, program managers, educational faculties and institutions, communities, and families. The Coalition worked in Botswana, Lesotho, Namibia, Malawi, and Swaziland.
To foster a strong, coordinated response to HIV/AIDS among Southern African organizations, the Coalition provided technical assistance and evaluated and shared promising practices and successful models for strengthening human resources for health. Technical assistance by the local and regional African organizations within the Coalition addressed the human capacity crisis by improving workforce planning and use, enhancing health worker skills, and strengthening systems to support health worker performance. The program marketed coalition organizations to governments and HIV/AIDS initiatives, encouraging the participation of African regional networks and institutions in combating the HIV/AIDS epidemic.
