Since COVID-19 arrived in South Africa in March 2020, over 1.5 million South Africans have been infected and more than 50,000 have lost their lives. While the second wave is easing and vaccines are being rolled-out, COVID19 is still a major threat to the health
and welfare of South Africans and is likely to be with us for some time to come.
COVID-19 has had the following impact on communities:
• Reduction in the uptake of HIV and TB screening, testing and treatment and the
weakening of treatment adherence (i.e. people not taking their HIV or TB
• Reduction in condom use and other harm reduction strategies
• Increasing gender-based violence (GBV) and child abuse, with a reduction in
accessing post violence care services.
• Increasing financial distress in communities and for community organisations
providing services in these communities
• Human rights abuses of those most marginalized in communities like sex
workers, the homeless and people who inject drugs.
• Increase in poverty and malnutrition further impacting on treatment adherence
and the ability to access services.
Many people in communities, particularly young people, do not appreciate the threat of
COVID and the risks they face. There are also many people who are hesitant to
consider taking the vaccines when they become available.
