In South Africa, HPP South Africa’s (HPP-SA) cooperation with PEPFAR started in 2005 with a grant from USAID to implement TCE in Bohlabela district. Since then, PEPFAR/ USAID has continued to provide funding through various umbrella programs, helping to expand the model into some of the most HIV-affected districts of South Africa.
Today, HPP-SA, a local HPP member, is implementing the USAID-funded, Foundation for Professional Development (FPD)-led Community Based Counseling and Testing (CBCT) program, through which HPP-SA has employed 170 field officers in Limpopo in Mopani District, Mpumalanga in Gert Sibande District, and Buffalo City in the Eastern Cape. Working through field officers based out of local clinics, HPP-SA provides HTS, TB screening, condom demonstration and distribution, and linkages to treatment and care.
Under the Supportive Referrals Initiative (SRI) for Orphans Programs (DREAMS) funded by USAID (2016- 2018), HPP-SA provides home-based counseling and testing through its TCE program model. The program reaches out to people at risk in workplaces and public gatherings, and provides mobile testing campaigns and counseling. To further address the SRI objectives, HPP-SA puts strong focus on the needs of the young women and adolescent girls, in particular, those who are in sexual and transactional relationships with older men.
