Personal message

The Raphael Centre, a civil society organisation, was established in 1999 to provide support services to people living with HIV. More recently, the Centre’s mandate has broadened to incorporate health and wellness services for both HIV positive and negative people. According to the World Health Organisation, health is not just the absence of disease, but a state of complete physical, mental and social wellbeing.

 

Therefore, the Centre’s mission is to work with communities to build physical, mental and social health and to inspire hope. Hope is one of the most important internal factors for health. Our vision is to see people believing in themselves, working together, to create healthy and caring communities.

 

The Centre has two core programmes.

1) To address physical health we provide HIV Counselling and Testing (HCT) and Follow Up services

to previously neglected and high risk groups (including young women, sex workers, couples and

people living in rural communities) following the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/Aids 90-

90-90 initiative. In addition to HCT, we also screen for TB and STIs.

 

2) To address mental and social health we provide Asset-based Community Development facilitation.

This focuses on the resources that people already have and provides tools to use these resources

for further development. Our Siya Sonke programme component works with families to better their

lives using Asset-based tools and methods.
