Working with partners in South Africa to address HIV/Aids
“The fight against diseases like HIV and AIDS can only be won through effective public/private partnership.”
David Evans, Global Fund Manager Resource Mobalisation Unit – Private Sector
“SABMiller India's truckers programme ‘Humsafar’ has been able to emphasize on educating and creating awareness amongst truckers on HIV/Aids through various outreach activities. The programme addresses the issue of stigma and discrimination and has been able to contribute valuably towards the fight against HIV/Aids.”
Divya Verma, National Programme Coordinator, HIV/Aids Programme ILO
“Working with the South Africa Business Coalition on HIV/Aids (SABCOHA) with co-funding from the Global Fund, our Tavern Intervention Programme is training facilitators who will engage with men across South Africa to address HIV/Aids, responsible alcohol consumption, gender violence and children's rights.
SABMiller has been an active member of SABCOHA since 2005. This strategic and mutually beneficial partnership resulted in funding from the Global Fund being successfully awarded to SABCOHA with SABMiller being the implementing partner on the Tavern Intervention Programme.”
Brad Mears, CEO, SABCOHA
