Mission Statement

Acting in the Spirit of Christ, Catholic AIDS Action challenges the AIDS pandemic in Namibia with the Courage to Fight and the Strength to Care for the benefit of all. In pursing justice and empowerment, and through holistic spirituality, CAA builds on Roman Catholic institutions and affiliated groups, other denominations, organizations and local communities to inspire and support programs of HIV/AIDS prevention and care and support to adults and children affected by and infected with HIV and AIDS.

Testing and New Start Centers

In partnership with the IntraHealth, Catholic AIDS Action operates two (2) Voluntary Counseling and Testing (VCT) Centers in Namibia. These centers provide quality, confidential testing for HIV. For those who test positive, referrals can immediately be made to Catholic AIDS Action volunteers for ongoing support, as well as to local health facilities for medical intervention. For those testing negative, they can be referred to Catholic AIDS Action prevention activities to help and support the individual to stay negative. CAA is now providing testing services for over 8,500 individuals each year.

VCT serves as the “gate way” to referrals for the prevention of mother-to-child interventions and anti-retroviral treatment.
