SANTA (South African National TB Associate) was Established in 1947, primarily to provide hospital care to TB patients. Our Initial focus was on TB, but this has evolved to include: 

  • HIV/AIDS, especially counselling & referral to public health care facilities 
  • Health promotion, especially on tobacco control 
  • Care & support to orphans & vulnerable children

We have community services in all 9 provinces in South Africa working towards our vision to make South Africa, Africa and the world “Free of TB”. Our mission is to work with governmental and non-governmental organisations to end TB, promote a quality of life and support vulnerable groups.  

Our Strategic objectives are to; 

  • Raise awareness on TB and HIV/AIDS 
  • Mitigate stigma and discrimination associated with TB and HIV/AIDS 
  • Support prevention, diagnostic and treatment services for TB and HIV/AIDS 
  • Provide care & support to vulnerable groups
