The Nelson Mandela Foundation (NMF) convened a dialogue on September 26 and 27, 2006. This brought key stakeholders together to share lessons on models of delivery of anti-retroviral treatment (ART) in resource-limited settings in South Africa. Delivery of anti-retrovirals is a complex issue which demands a multi-stakeholder approach.
This dialogue process also marked the end of a successful four-year project run in partnership with the Eastern Cape Department of Health, Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) and the NMF, providing anti-retroviral therapy to people in Lusikisiki in the Eastern Cape. MSF and NMF handed over the project in its entirety to the Eastern Cape Department of Health on October 12, 2006.
