NACOSA is a network of over 1,500 civil society organisations working together to turn the tide on HIV, AIDS and TB in South Africa. NACOSA promotes dialogue, builds capacity with accredited training, mentoring and technical assistance and channels resources to support service delivery on the ground, particularly among key populations.
As a principal recipient of the Global Fund and in partnership with USAID and PEPFAR and the Department of Health, NACOSA works at all levels – from international agencies and national government, right though to sub-district services and small, community groups. Over the past 14 years, NACOSA has learned that when people come together to tackle social and health challenges, they have a stronger voice and are more effective.
Our role as a network is not just to take services to people but to bring people and their ideas to the development of services. “NACOSA takes forward the voices of the people on the ground.” NACOSA training is accredited by the Health and Welfare Sector Education and Training Authority. We are a Level 2 B-BBEE entity with 18A tax exemption status, providing tax relief on donations.
