USAID: USAID/SA Deputy Mission Director, Rebecca Krzywda delivers remarks at GCBS event
In remarks during a learning event in South Africa last week, USAID/Southern Africa Deputy Mission Director Rebecca Krzywda discussed PEPFAR’s activities within the country, noting, “We and the South African government started the Government Capacity Building and Support Project in 2013 with the aim of strengthening the Department of Social Services systems at the national, provincial, and district level. We had a clear goal — improving direct service delivery to orphans, children, and youth who are vulnerable to HIV, sexually transmitted infections, and tuberculosis. We have worked together to enable a competent and skilled social service workforce that is child- and youth-centered, well-coordinated, and working in unison to support the goals and objectives of South Africa’s National Strategic Plan and HIV response efforts…” (8/3).
