Membership growth critical to SABCOHA’s sustainability
Retention and growth of our membership base remains a strategic focus area because the sustainability of SABCOHA depends on this more than any other source of funding. Member contributions to SABCOHA’s mission cannot be underestimated and remain fundamental to our ability to deliver on our mandate, while keeping pace with the expectations of stakeholders and the rapidly expanding workload.

The organised business environment offers a unique opportunity to target millions of employees affected by TB, HIV and AIDS. SABCOHA aims to mobilise, empower and coordinate a unified business sector response to the epidemic. To this end, SABCOHA strives to help companies, both large and small, in their efforts by implementing specific workplace interventions.
As a member or sponsor of SABCOHA you can participate in these initiatives that provide both the skills and the knowledge to manage TB, HIV and AIDS in the workplace. Being a member of SABCOHA allows you to benefit from discounts from service providers and suppliers and offers a platform to learn from and engage with other members and experts in the field. Furthermore, SABCOHA membership affords your company the opportunity to be part of the broader business sector response, advocating for change in national policies when necessary and collaborating with other sectors and national, provincial and district AIDS structures.
