One of the key reasons for the success of this massive public/private partnership is that each partner has a defined role and set of responsibilities.  None of these partners compete in what they do as they each donate their own set of services. Strategic and Primary  partners from an international perspective include: The National Department of Health, PEPFAR through the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention, Rotary International, Rotary in-country, National Lotteries Commission, Dis-Chem Foundation, AHF, Gift of the Givers Foundation, Gilead Sciences, the SABC Foundation and Caxton. 

On the ground the Rotary Clubs work with local NGO's and the in-country government's to mobilize hundreds of additional partners to volunteer and provide add-on services at site level, contributing to the tens of thousands of volunteers each year around the world. 

International Partners

Rotary brings together a global network of volunteer leaders who dedicate their time and talent to tackle the world’s most pressing humanitarian challenges. Rotary connects 1.2 million members from more than 200 countries and geographical areas. Their work impacts lives at both the local and international levels, from helping families in need in their own communities to working toward a polio- free world in the spirit of the Rotary motto of “Service Above Self”. Rotary International’s Six Areas of Focus include:

  • Peace and conflict prevention/resolution;
  • Disease prevention and treatment;
  • Water and sanitation;
  • Maternal and child health;
  • Basic education and literacy; and
  • Economic and community development

The RFHD Programme falls under 3 of the above – Disease Prevention and Treatment, Maternal and Child Health, and Peace and Conflict Prevention/Resolution.

In South Africa, all three Rotary Districts are engaged with the RFHD Programme – including 95 clubs in all 9 Provinces and clos to 1,000 Rotary volunteers to support, facilitate, manage, mobilize and support partners at site level.
