ABOUT US

CABSA was established in 2001 with the aim to empower and assist faith communities to respond to the HIV epidemic. With churches in almost every outpost of Africa, CABSA believes a wonderful potential exists for churches and Christians to be part of the solution to the HIV crisis. CABSA aims to unlock this potential.

Today CABSA dreams of caring Christian communities that are able to bring new life and hope in the areas of health, wellbeing and equality in a world affected by HIV. In order to achieve this, CABSA motivates and assists the Church to bring transformation in the areas of health, well-being and gender equality in a world affected by HIV.

CABSA brings change and hope through training, advocacy, sharing information and networking.

CABSA is a faith based NGO registered in South Africa, providing services internationally, but with a specific focus on Southern Africa.

Through the work of CABSA, faith leaders, community leaders, faith communities and marginalised communities learn accurate, scientific facts about HIV in their contexts and are assisted and challenged to respond as people of faith to the realities of HIV in their respective communities.
