AgriAid SA announces name change

AgriAid SA is proud to announce its name change from AgriAids SA to AgriAid SA. The decision came about that the fight against AIDS alone is one that has been drastically suppressed over the years, and that efforts to prevent infected people reaching the AIDS continuum have been an outstanding success.

Thus the removal of the letter ‘’s’’ in the Aids phrase is motivated by this decision, however, the fight against HIV is an ongoing battle, with the link between HIV, TB, and non-communicable diseases (NCD). It is in this light that our main focus is to provide quality health care and wellness services to workers and communities within agriculture, forestry and fisheries.

AgriAid SA is an NGO established in 2008 to organise and implement HIV, Tuberculosis (TB) and wellness programmes to workers in agriculture, forestry and fisheries across five provinces in South Africa and within 12 districts. The programmes are funded and supported by the US Agency for International Development (USAID), a PEPFAR implementing agency, and the National Department of Health (NDoH). The main goal of AgriAid SA is to reduce the direct effects of HIV and TB on agriculture, forestry and fisheries workers and their beneficiaries. Thus it does by promoting an integrated approach wherein HIV, TB  and NCD awareness are raised through sharing of information, biannual testing and offering treatment as they are essential components in fighting the pandemic.

In addition, we have tweaked our old logo to fit in with the current direction the organisation is taking. Check out our home page on http://agriaids.org.za/

We look forward to continuing our efforts in ensuring that agriculture, forestry and fisheries workers have access to quality health care and wellness services implemented effectively at their workplace.

    Hi Mike

    Just came across, through googling, the Agriaid SA website. As much as I hear that the NGO has something to do with HIV, TB, NCD and the wellness of farm worker, I feel that I must ask if this NGO does help or assist the upcoming farmers with working implements, seeds, seedling and transport? Also, can the NGO assist with the search a ploughing piece of Land?

    I thank you in advance.

    King regards

    FG Duze

      Good day, Fanele and thank you for your reply. As an NGO, we only work in the delivery of health care services to workers and communities in agriculture, fisheries and forestry. As such, we are not directly linked to issues pertaining to commercial farming and funding of that you ask. Although, I would recommend that you make contact with Agri SA. Their website address is http://www.agrisa.co.za/

      Be good. :)
