The AIDS Foundation of South Africa pays significant focus to achieve these goals by having supported 92 Community based organizations (CBOs) countrywide over the last financial year. CBOs are central to our aim to mitigate the effects of HIV and AIDS in the most vulnerable communities within South Africa. Furthermore, the training of community health care workers who conduct household visits and provide HIV & AIDS education, home and community based care and support services to households in distress helps to alleviate the burden of our overwhelmed public health care facilities.
It could be claimed that the news media have taken a less aggressive stance since the end of Mbeki’s presidency and the death of Tshabalala Msimang. The emergence of Jacob Zuma as party and state leader heralded what the press saw as a new era of AIDS treatment.  However, this also means that HIV is afforded less news coverage. A recent study by the HIV/AIDS and the Media Project has shown that the quantity of HIV-related news coverage has declined dramatically from 2002/3 (what could be considered the pinnacle of government denialism) to the more recent “conflict resolution” phase under Zuma. Perhaps HIV has fallen into the traditional categories of being impersonal, undramatic, "old" news.  The number of health journalists has also declined considerably.
