SAT HISTORY

The Sexual Reproductive Health and Rights Africa Trust (SAT) was established in 1990 under the name of the Southern African AIDS Training Programme (SAT), by a consortium of the Canadian Public Health Association (CPHA), the University of Manitoba, McMaster University, and the Canadian Society for International Health. Soon after inception, the consortium partners agreed that joint project responsibility was not functional and three of the partners withdrew, leaving the CPHA as sole implementing agency. The reference to “training” in the Programme’s name is the only trace of the consortium.

SAT’s original mandate was to support community based organisation strengthen programming in HIV and AIDS in SADC countries. With the regional secretarial based in Harare, Zimbabwe, SAT soon established country offices in the following countries: Botswana (1991), Lesotho (1991), Malawi (1991) Mozambique (1992) Namibia (1991), Swaziland (1991) Tanzania (1992) Zambia (1991) and Zimbabwe
(1990) In 2003, SAT was incorporated as an independent regional, not for profit organization and changed its name to The Southern African AIDS Trust (SAT). At that time, CPHA’s role changed from a manager and executing agency of the SAT Programme, to providing technical support to SAT, the stand-alone organization.

In 2005, SAT relocated the regional secretariat from Harare, Zimbabwe to Johannesburg, South Africa, and was registered as a Section 21 Not for Profit Company. SAT has evolved its programming activities to focus on SRHR in eastern and southern Africa, while still addressing HIV within an SRHR framework. For more than 2 decades, SAT has worked in and alongside communities, civil society organizations and networks to mobilize and strengthen their capacity to respond to the HIV epidemic and improve their sexual and reproductive health and rights. In 2017, the SAT Board, in appreciation of the apparent shift in strategic focus, resolved to change the name of the organisation from the Southern African AIDS Trust (SAT) to the Sexual Reproductive Health and Rights Africa Trust (SAT) trading as the SRHR Africa Trust (SAT). Currently SAT supports over 100 communities, NGOs, CBOs and activists working for universal sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) for girls, adolescents and young women in inclusive, equitable systems for health.
