USAID and BroadReach Healthcare Supported Operation Sukuma Sakhe Wins Health Innovators Review Award and Recognized as Best Practice by UNAIDS!
USAID and longstanding USAID partner, BroadReach Healthcare are at the forefront of helping the KZN government fight disease, in particular HIV/AIDS/TB, ensure food security, reduce poverty, empower women and youth, and to instil behavioural change amongst the citizens of the province through a ground-breaking program called Operation Sukuma Sakhe (OSS).
On November 12th, 2013, longstanding USAID implementing partner, BroadReach Healthcare, handed over the extension to the Out Patient Department (OPD) unit at Tayler’s Bequest Hospital in Joe Gqabi District to the Eastern Cape Department of Health.
Cheryl Anderson was sworn in today as the U.S. Agency for International Development’s (USAID) Mission Director for Southern Africa. In this capacity, she will oversee USAID’s regional activities in the Southern Africa region, country-specific activities in South Africa, as well as activities in countries in the region where there is no USAID mission.
As the largest economy on the African continent, a model for peaceful post-conflict transition, a stable democracy, and as the vanguard in addressing HIV and AIDS, South Africa serves as an example for many African countries. However, to ensure its continued success, the Government of South Africa (GoSA) recognizes that it must address its internal challenges. The nation seeks to solve the most persistent of development challenges such as income inequality, delivery systems struggling to cope with an increasing number of needs, and growing vulnerable populations.
