Yezingane Network is a civil society network of thousands of organisations and individuals working around the country to address the impact of HIV and AIDS on children, families and communities in South Africa. The Network was formed in 2003 after the Children’s Rights Centre called for better representation of children’s issues on SANAC. Network members include those supporting children living throughout the country, including those in urban, peri-urban and rural areas, who are coping with violence, abuse, neglect, exploitation, poverty and HIV and AIDS. The aim is to limit, mitigate and redress the increasingly negative impact of HIV and AIDS on children’s lives, and on the lives of the women and the families and communities that nurture and care for them.
