WHO WE ARE


The Anova Health Institute is dedicated to improving health with particular emphasis on HIV. In South Africa, Anova is strengthening and supporting the public healthcare system through technical assistance. Providing capacity building, clinical expertise and facilitating health technology expansion, Anova is an important partner to the Department of Health.

Known for its innovative HIV responses, Anova’s Health4Men Initiative is at the forefront of developing appropriate linkages to health services and information for men who have sex with men (MSM). Anova is increasing access to competent health care through an expanding network of private and public sector clinics and is the leading organisation in this field.

Anova’s areas of medical expertise include medical male circumcision (MMC), prevention of mother-to-child transmission (PMTCT), TB and HIV care and treatment (including paediatric, adolescent and adult care), eye care and mental health.

Anova conducts research that underpins their work and disseminates their learning through training, conferences, seminars and workshops. Working through their various projects, Anova is able to bring their expertise and skills into the community and assist government in implementing better healthcare.

Anova employs over 300 people, more than 60% female and a broadly representative mix of South Africa’s race groups.

Anova has established a progressive corporate governance framework and seeks to build trust, support and innovation into all aspects of its operations. A board of directors guides Anova’s activities in relation to its constitution and vision.
