Changing the SRHR Landscape and Uprooting Gender Inequality

The SRHR Africa Trust (previously known as Southern African AIDS Trust) is a HIGH-IMPACT regional Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) which is geared towards achieving Sexual and Reproductive Health Rights (SRHR) and Gender Equality across Eastern and Southern Africa (ESA).

SAT was established in 1990 to support community based organisation strengthen programming in HIV and AIDS. SAT has evolved its programming activities to broaden our focus to SRHR in ESA. We work with communities, regional Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) and activists working for universal sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) for girls, adolescents and young women in inclusive, equitable systems for health. We work in communities, districts, countries, and the region, continent and have a GLOBAL FOOTPRINT in the policy and advocacy space.

We programme largely for youth and with youth, paying particular attention to young powerful voices, growing, nurturing and supporting advocates across the continent in SRHR.



To achieve gender equality our programmes are all designed and implemented through a gender transformative approach, that addresses the structural barriers to gender equality at different levels. We work within systems using the Sustainable Development Goal 5 as the bare minimum for what needs to change and push a feminist agenda.



Information is needed to use in planning, monitoring and evaluation of the policies and programs that will together achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and in holding to account those in positions of power over resources and other decisions that affect people’s lives.



SAT Regional Youth Hubs were launched on 12 August 2018, International Youth Day! Since the inception, the programme is geared towards providing supportive spaces (physical and virtual) to bring together a collection of activists and change-agents in sexual and reproductive health rights (SRHR) and gender equality.



Our long history and learning around HIV has led to holistic programming Sexual and Reproductive Health Right Needs (SRHR). We continue to maintain and ensure strengthened focus on HIV through Her Voice Fund and supporting the network for adolescents living with HIV (Y+) in South Africa.
