South Africa has the highest number of people living with HIV in the world – over 7 million people. To turn the tide on HIV and AIDS, it is essential to involve all sectors of society and to strengthen community systems to respond to local challenges. NACOSA is a networking organisation that brings communities together to tackle HIV and its impact on key and vulnerable populations. We do this through mobilizing our network of over 2,000 organisations, promoting dialogue between government and affected people, building capacity through accredited training, mentoring and technical assistance and channeling resources to support service delivery on the ground, particularly for children and youth, key populations and women and girls.
