SAT is a regional NGO with over two decades of regional programming and a host of successful, sustainable NGO partners behind it. Formed in 1990, SAT is registered as a non-profit organisation in six southern African countries and has a regional coordinating office in South Africa. SAT supports communities via country offices, country programmes or directly via regional programming.
For SAT, communities are best placed to define their own needs and to develop innovative responses to their needs and challenges. This principle has underpinned SAT support to communities and those that support communities to develop and implement programmes and deliver HIV and AIDS responses. Now, the urgency of universal access to health services and health rights for all, combination prevention, declining resources for HIV, and the need to integrate HIV responses with other sustainable responses at every level are changing the context of HIV.
