For decades, FHI 360 has been a strategic partner to the Government of South Africa. Our projects have focused on key human development priorities, such as:
- Improving reproductive health
- Increasing family planning options
- Preventing the spread of HIV
- Strengthening nutritional assessments
- Providing counseling and support services
- Enhancing the capacity of national and local organizations
- Developing policies and guidelines that promote health and well-being
- Promoting educational opportunities for youth
FHI 360 has served as a leader in the integration of water and sanitation interventions with home-based palliative care. We also strengthen the capacity of the government and civil society to provide high-quality sexual and reproductive health services and deliver primary health care through mobile service units.
We have strengthened civil society organizations by pioneering the integration of grants management and capacity development. Our expertise in capacity development includes program design and management, grants management, financial management and compliance, governance, human resources and strategic planning, resource mobilization, and monitoring and evaluation.
Our work in secondary education and community service is cultivating new leaders through programs that emphasize democracy, ethics and people-centered development.
Engaging stakeholders is an important part of our work. We maintain strong partnerships with government agencies, universities, nongovernmental organizations and local community-based groups. We collaborate to conduct research, implement programs and deliver technical assistance. And, we connect various stakeholders so they can design programs that respond to needs, align with national strategies, leverage the efforts of other actors and contribute to real improvements in health systems.
