Welcome to ARASA
The AIDS and Rights Alliance for southern Africa (ARASA) was established in 2002 as a regional partnership of civil society organisations working in 18 countries in Southern and East Africa. Between 2019 and 2021, the partnership will work to promote respect for and the protection of the rights to bodily autonomy and integrity for all in order to reduce inequality, especially gender inequality and promote health, dignity and wellbeing in southern and east Africa.

ARASA conducts its work in a multi-dimensional, multi-level and multi-directional operational approach under two programme areas, namely (i) capacity strengthening; and (ii) advocacy, both of which utilise the diversity of the ARASA partnership to build and strengthen the capacity of civil society for advocacy and have regional and national components. We also work to elevate the experiences of our partners to influence international health policy and to advise global political, health and financing institutions
