"Sometimes when we talk about public health we divorce it from the people that the health system is really helping. So we look at numbers and drugs and clinics, but in the end it’s about affecting the life of a mother and a baby; it’s about affecting the life of a young gay teenager who is scared to go into a clinic… That’s what Anova’s work is really about and that’s what our teams are doing so well."
~ Prof James McIntyre, CEO of Anova

Projects & Programmes

Anova has developed various projects in different parts of South Africa in an effort to bring their expertise to the community. A leading partner to the Department of Health, Anova has a reputation for innovative responses, thought leadership and research in HIV.
  • Yellow Dot Doctor

    The Yellow Dot Doctor campaign is an innovative approach of reaching doctors in private practice with education, sensitisation and awareness of MSM health information. The goal of the campaign is to ensure the uptake of services of MSM patients and ensure that doctors are appropriately screening, diagnosing and retaining MSM patients in care. The campaign is also on an awareness drive to inform MSM that these Yellow Dot Doctors exist, that can cater to their specific needs.

  • MyFutureFirst

    MyFutureFirst is a campaign that is part of the Anova / APACE program.

    The MyFutureFirst project aims to promote the sexual reproductive health and rights (SRHR) of AGYW, by offering SRHR literacy and administering contraception in aid of the reduction of unplanned pregnancies and further STI including HIV infection and transmission. These interventions include HIV testing for AGYW and their male sex partners and cover issues of gender-based violence.

    The project markets the services of health facilities as well as encourages youth to pledge to put their future first – this is done through dialogues with youth and engagement with the MyFutureFirst communication channels. There is media coverage; live activations at ground level and online two-way engagement with the youth via the #MyFutureFirst Facebook page.

  • Health4Men

    The AnovaApace Program offers personal and confidential environments, designed to encourage the discussion of men’s most sensitive health issues, which are generally more complex than a simple check-up. This is a collaborative effort among specialists, health care workers, nurses, WBOT's and counsellors from a wide range of practices — all of them experienced in male-specific conditions.
