The Anova Health Institute is an NGO that empowers people and changes lives. Good health and quality of life are what motivates us to provide healthcare solutions and support for those who need it most. With a specific focus on HIV, our work is built on a foundation of research to ensure that funds are focused where we can make the most difference. Much of our work has centered in South Africa, where Anova is a trusted partner of the Department of Health. We are committed to bolstering the public healthcare system through skills building, improved recordkeeping and monitoring, management training and improved client flow. By identifying opportunities to enhance public health, we are making significant contributions to sustainable healthcare infrastructure. Our teams throughout South Africa are also actively involved in community outreach, support, engagement and awareness, and educational campaigns.
This project focuses specifically on children and adolescents who are living with HIV, through supporting the Department of Health to improve the uptake of HIV testing, ARV initiation and retention in care for children and adolescents

Bhekisisa - Centre for Health Journalism

0 EPISODES | MAIL & GUARDIAN |  Podcast
With support from the German government, the M&G launched a health journalism centre, Bhekisisa, in January 2013. This enabled the publication to appoint a health editor and two reporters and also to offer reporters from other publications fellowships so they could be mentored when writing health stories.
In September 2015, Bhekisisa received funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to expand its health coverage to the rest of the African continent. In March 2016, the centre launched its own website and registered as a non-profit organisation that receives and manages funding independently from the M&G.
The centre regularly hosts and organises critical thinking forums on subjects such as South Africa’s National Health Insurance scheme, tuberculosis and the decriminalisation of sex work. Bhekisisa also conducts trainings on health issues for journalists and effective media communication for policy makers.
The Bhekisisa Health Journalism Centre is based in the offices of the M&G. As a content provider to the newspaper, it serves as the M&G's largest specialist editorial desk. It has eight full-time staff members, including a director/editor, deputy editor, programme associate, senior multimedia journalist, three health journalists and a social media and content producer. Bhekisisa also has a part-time Africa editor, health writer and monitoring and evaluations specialist. Moreover, the centre works with about ten freelance correspondents across Africa.
The print edition of the M&G has two weekly health pages, but Bhekisisa reporters also publish articles in the newspaper’s comment and analysis and general news sections. Between 2012 and 2017, the online readership of the M&G’s health stories has increased 35 fold.
