Joint Oxfam HIV/AIDS Programme
In 1998, a group of Oxfam agencies established the Joint Oxfam HIV/AIDS Programme in South Africa (JOHAP) in an effort to strengthen the South African civil society response to HIV/AIDS. JOHAP provides both funding and non-financial technical support to partner organisations. The latter includes support for incorporating HIV/AIDS into the ongoing work of existing Oxfam partner organisations in South Africa; support for planning, monitoring, and evaluation; and assistance with the development of behavioural change interventions. Secondary strategies include direct advocacy and management and leadership to ensure that projects are implemented in a cost-effective and accountable way.
