South Africa HIV ATTC

The South Africa HIV ATTC is a United States President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) and Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) funded centre dedicated to providing training and technical assistance to providers addressing substance use, mental health and HIV throughout the country. Founded in 2017, our new centre reflects a strategic international partnership between the New England ATTC - one of the longest continuously operating ATTCs in the United States - and the University of Cape Town, the oldest and one of the highest ranked universities in South Africa.
