To provide cutting-edge, comprehensive care for patients with HIV and their families by offering prevention, early diagnosis, wellness care, ART (Anti Retroviral Therapy) and palliative care to people with HIV.

Sinikithemba HIV/AIDS Care Center is the “Treatment” partner of Loving South Africa. Part of McCord Zulu Hospital, it has gained local, national and international recognition for its contribution in providing comprehensive care to people affected by the HIV epidemic.

McCord Zulu Hospital opened in May 1909 to provide medical care to the Zulu people of Durban, South Africa.  This small, efficient hospital now provides top quality, affordable healthcare for all population groups.

The hospital is a center for health education, training and research locally and internationally, and has an impact well beyond its size and location. It is known for its compassionate care and high standards in healthcare delivery and for being at the forefront of medical advances.

Their services include:

  • Counselling and Testing
  • Wellness care
  • Adult care and treatment
  • Pediatric care & treatment

With support from funders and donors like LSA, the Prevention of Mother to Child Transmission (PMTCT) and ART (Anti Retroviral Therapy) programs have produced tremendous results and have attracted the attention of medical personnel and researchers from South Africa and around the world.

LSA and McCord Zulu Hospital believe no child with HIV/AIDS should be turned away because they cannot afford treatment or admission.

Partnership and support with LSA help cover the costs of admission and monthly ARVs for those children who have parents who are not able to afford them.
