About Anova Health Institute
The Anova Health Institute is an NGO that empowers people and changes lives. Good health and quality of life are what motivates us to provide healthcare solutions and support for those who need it most. With a specific focus on HIV, our work is built on a foundation of research to ensure that funds are focused where we can make the most difference.
Known for our innovative HIV responses, our Health4Men Initiative is at the forefront of developing appropriate linkages to health services and information for men who have sex with men (MSM). We are increasing access to competent healthcare through an expanding network of private and public sector clinics and we’re the leading organisation in this field.
Our teams throughout South Africa are also actively involved in community outreach, support, engagement and awareness, and educational campaigns.
Our areas of medical expertise include surveillance in key populations, clinical and social research, elimination of mother-to-child transmission of HIV, TB and HIV care and treatment (including paediatric, adolescent and adult care), health systems strengthening (mHealth, supply chain management, quality improvement and management training), eye care and mental health. Findings are disseminated through academic journals, training, conferences, seminars and workshops.
We have established a progressive corporate governance framework and seek to build trust, support and innovation into all aspects of our operations. A board of directors guides our activities in relation to our constitution and vision. The board is chaired by John Moalusi and includes relevant sub-committees and checks and balances for risk and growth management.
