Our MISSION is to mobilize and strengthen a network of frontline healthcare providers to improve paediatric and adolescent HIV prevention, treatment, care and support in sub-Saharan Africa.

Our VISION is that all children and adolescents living with HIV in sub-Saharan Africa receive optimal treatment, care and support and live long, healthy lives.



Project REACH emerged as a response to the above and grew out of the previously supported Expert Patient Programme (EPP). Project REACH is a peer support model that sets out to demonstrate an innovative approach of harnessing the lived expertise of ALHIV and YPLHIV as community health workers within health facilities in order to improve HIV treatment and care services for, and treatment outcomes in, their peers, while providing these ALHIV and YPLHIV themselves with skills, capacity-building and networking opportunities to improve their own health and wellbeing.

Launched in 2015, the programme has completed a successful 12-month pilot.

From February 2017, PATA will launch REACH’s second phase to develop and form a cohesive implementation model across six sub-Saharan countries. PATA is therefore inviting interested health facilities to complete and submit an application to be part of REACH in 2017.
