Right to Care is at the vanguard in supporting and delivering prevention, care, and treatment services for HIV and associated diseases. We work with government and communities to find pioneering solutions to build and strengthening public healthcare.
We embrace a strong entrepreneurial culture and focused on innovation and the use of technology to enhance services, address skills shortages, and deliver quality healthcare outcomes. Our areas of expertise include HIV and TB care and treatment, pharmacy automation, medical male circumcision, and cervical cancer diagnosis and treatment.
Research fortifies our work in every field. Our experts share their knowledge at conferences, through certified training and articles published in peer-reviewed journals.
In 2001, our founder Prof Ian Sanne registered Right to Care as a non-profit (Section 21) organisation in Johannesburg. A year later our first funding was received from the international aid agency USAID.
In 2004, we moved into our current offices at Helen Joseph Hospital, Johannesburg, and began providing clinic services funded by the Pepfar, a fund administered by USAID. By this time, Right to Care had matured from a start-up, pioneer-led organisation to a well-established donor-funded NGO. Within a few years, we were providing tens of thousands of patient with ARV and TB treatment in multiple provinces.
In 2010, with a growing compliment of 500 staff members, we were appointed principal recipient for the Global Fund (Round 10). Around that time, we began a USAID-led transition from direct service delivery to technical assistance, primarily to the Department of Health. Our partnership with the Department of Health was strengthened and a renewed focus was on supporting their initiatives.
Today we have over 1500 staff members and this is growing. Our mission stretches beyond South African borders and we are providing assistance internationally.
That every individual will have ready and affordable access to quality evidence-based medical services.
To respond to public health needs by supporting and delivering innovative, quality healthcare solutions, based on the latest medical research and established best practices, for the prevention, treatment, and management of infectious and chronic diseases.
