CareWorks for Donors


CareWorks has run HIV programmes since 2009, both as a prime recipient as well as a  sub-recipient funded by various donor agencies. Most funding has been from PEPFAR through both CDC and USAID.  

Other HIV programmes have been funded by:

  • The Key Populations Investment Fund

  • The National HIV Think Tank (funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation)

  • The Exxaro Chairman’s Fund

  • IFC Against AIDS

  • The Danish Investment Fund for Developing Countries


CareWorks’ current programmes focus on reaching priority and key populations through integrated service delivery models at workplaces and within communities.

Funded services include:

  • HIV Testing Services (HTS)

  • Patient management and treatment, through the CareWorks virtual ePharmacy, to support Antiretroviral Treatment (ART) and Pre-exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP)

  • HIV self-screening (HIVSS) for hard-to-reach and key population clients


CareWorks provides differentiated services depending on the population group and addresses structural barriers to uptake.  This increases access to services as well as continuity of care, and reduces new infections in high-risk populations.


CareWorks also has extensive experience in developing and implementing demand creation strategies and has run large programmes in support of the South African Voluntary Medical Male Circumcision Programme (VMMC).
