The AIDS Consortium NPC (AC) was founded in 1992 and is one of the largest non-government organisation (NGO) networks in South Africa, serving over 200 affiliated members in the HIV, AIDS and Human Rights sectors. AC served as the South African Linking Organisation of the International HIV/AIDS Alliance (IHAA), and currently represents its network on the South African National AIDS Council (SANAC) as the NGO Sector Leader, and is an accredited training service provider.

The AIDS Consortium NPC mobilises resources to strengthen communities and all sectors to meaningfully and measurably curtail the epidemic, through impacting on the lives of vulnerable populations, in particular, those whose vulnerability puts them at higher risk of contracting HIV.

The national affiliate network of community based organisations (CBOs) is the vehicle through which the Consortium works to implement targeted interventions in communities to address a multitude of developmental issues, including education on, and prevention of, HIV & TB, behaviour change communication and interventions relating to sexual risk, substance abuse, and human rights awareness raising. The network consists of funded and non-funded entities motivated by the needs of the community within which they reside, and the drive to see their situation change for the better.

This is complimented by a collaborative network which consists of a broader array of entities with knowledge and technical skills that can enhance the skills of the affiliate network, thus positively influencing the way in which the affiliate network responds to HIV in their community.
