On June 2nd, 2010, USAID hosted Jimmie Briggs, a journalist, author, and activist, on a visit to a Thuthuzela Care Center (TCC) in Tembisa, South Africa. He was in the country to promote his Man Up campaign. The campaign’s main focus is to create a following amongst youths globally to join efforts to prevent violence against women. USAID has been working with advocate Thoko Majokweni, the head of the Sexual Offences and Community Affairs (SOCA) Unit of South Africa’s National Prosecution Authority, to help launch multiple TCCs across South Africa.

Mpumalanga: In August 2007 South Africa’s Mpumalanga Department of Health and Social Services (DOHSS) asked the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) to support the implementation of a new drug warehouse. The aim includes supplying and installing equipment, helping to develop standard operating procedures, and training warehouse staff.

CHALLENGE

Gender-based violence and sexual assault in South Africa is a widespread dilemma that leaves many women, children and other vulnerable people traumatized and helpless. In response, Thuthuzela Care Centers (TCCs) work with survivors and providers alike to tackle this epidemic.

CHALLENGE

South Africa has a rapidly growing economy that is highly dependent on fossil fuels.  As the economic status of individuals improves, the demand on already strained energy production and associated greenhouse gas emissions is expected to increase dramatically. The USG aims to assist the Government of South Africa to move towards achievement of the ambitious emissions reduction targets it announced in November 2011 in the National Climate Change Response White Paper.
