Written by Health-e News

The South African National AIDS Council (SANAC) outlines its plan for the next three years in this 48-page performance plan.

As part of this year’s annual performance plan, SANAC plans to strengthen its administration, communications and fundraising capabilities. In 2017, the body will need to fundraise R25 million to replenish reserves, according to the report. Meanwhile, fund transfers to partners and NGOs are expected to steadily grow between now and then.

In a forward to the 48-page report, SANAC CEO Dr Fareed Abdullah notes that significant investment will be devoted to monitoring and evaluation functions. This coincides with a mid-term evaluation of the National Strategic Plan (NSP) set to take place this year. The recently created oversight body the SANAC Trust is also expected to publish four reports annually that include recommendations to improve NSP programmng.

The report also adds that all SANAC structures are now “fully functional and effective”, including the plenary, civil society forum and technical task teams. However, the report also notes that sectors continue to struggle.

  • It is very sad to be not paid as a chw after giving it all for the whole month doing your work helping patients infected an affected by HIV/AIDS. R2 500 is not a lot of money, we have families to look after, children to see for them that they go to school clean with healthy minds, but how can one fulfill those needs if you do not get what is due to you at the end of the month. Imagine going to work on an empty stomach going to promote healthy life to patients. Where do you get power and confidence to do all that?

    Some of us have chronic illnesses which need confidence and positive mind about working as a chw.

    The department needs to fully come to the party to show appreciation of the impact we make.

    Verifications for CHWs has been made in of all the regions in the CoJ but still we don’t get paid and no one is telling what are the hiccups.

    We can’t keep up with our budgets because we don’t know when to get paid. By the time you get your pay you already in mashonisa books which is not easy to escape if the issue of payment does not improve. We get threatened and chased out of our places of residence because we rent them and we can’t keep up with our rentals. We get blacklisted because we can’t keep up with our instalments for clothing and furniture even the most important thing of all e.g insurance policies lapse.

    Really we need change.
