President’s Emergency Plan For Aids Relief PEPFAR

1 October 2019 – 30 September 2020

The U.S. President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) is the U.S. government’s response to the global HIV/AIDS epidemic and represents the largest commitment by any nation to address a single disease in history. Thanks to American leadership and generosity, alongside the work of many partners, PEPFAR has saved millions of lives, averted millions of infections, and changed the course of the epidemic. (

South Coast Hospice is honoured and thankful to be one of the NGOs awarded the PEPFAR HIV Community Grant.

Diane van Dyk (CEO of South Coast Hospice) is the Project Manager.

‘The team at South Coast Hospice is privileged to be given this opportunity through PEPFAR. This allows us to continue the services that we provide within our community. This project enables us to grow and elevate our standards, contribute to our sustainability, and build relationships within the community.
When we apply our philosophy of palliative care, which is an interdisciplinary and holistic approach, the benefits are enormous.’
