  • Networking and Capacity-Building Forums;
  • South African Voices HIV Museum

 

(1)  Health Service Finder Database & Health Services Strengthening Tools

info4africa specializes in data collection, data quality assurance and development of health strengthening support tools.  Our team is passionate about bolstering and facilitating access to health and wellbeing service provider information throughout South Africa.

We have developed a national database platform that simplifies and enhances the ability of both the public and service providers to identify what services exist in any community, where they are located and to whom these services are targeted.

Debbie Heustice says “Our team help people find services relevant to their needs.  With over 15 000 organisations listed across the public, private and non-government sectors, we make it easier for people to know where to turn when they need to find HIV and TB-related treatment, care and support services and advice.’

info4africa maintain and constantly expand this country-wide database.  We have created several free, easy to use tools to empower people to find services 24-hours a day. Listing your organisation on the national database is free of charge.

(2)  Networking and Capacity Building Forums

We have, since 2002, been engaged in a wide variety of networking and capacity building activities that broadly reflect service provision in health, wellbeing and development in South Africa. 

We facilitate free networking and capacity building forums for the faith-based, social welfare, non-government and wider practitioner community in KwaZulu-Natal.  Our forum partners include the South African Medical Research Council (SA MRC), Religions for Peace, the KZN Inter-Religious Council and KZN Civil Society Coalition (KZNCSOC).

Forums are free and are held regularly at locations in central Durban.  Join our forum mailing list, email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

(3) South African Voices: A Museum of HIV Memory and Learning (SAVHM)

We recently established and continue to run the first HIV Museum in South Africa, titled South African Voices: Towards a Museum of HIV Memory and Learning.

Ranked as the country with the highest HIV prevalence in the world, South Africa has walked a long and difficult road to curb the spread of HIV, TB and STIs.  SAVHM is a synthesis of the many stories, faces and voices in the South African story of HIV.  Blending science and art, SAVHM weaves a historical and contemporary narrative on South Africa’s HIV history, exploring key educational objectives that talk to the need for new learning and practice, if we are to achieve an AIDS free generation by 2030.

SAVHM has received an impressive 25 000 visitors in its first year of operation.  Over 60% of these visitors are youth.  It is clear from the many affirming comments in the visitor’s book that SA Voices contributes to a more holistic understanding of HIV in South Africa.

SAVHM stands as a significant, creative, educational space for learning and engagement on the topic of HIV, AIDS and TB.

Visit the SA Voices Museum at KwaMuhle Museum, 130 Bram Fischer Road, Durban, KwaZulu-Natal or the satellite version of the SAVHM located at University of KwaZulu-Natal’s EG Malherbe Library, Howard College Campus, Durban.  Entry is free and guided tours are available.
