Author: Dr Renier A. Koegelenberg

  • Founding member and Executive Secretary of the NRASD
  • Condenses the key issues and challenges of forming effective partnerships between faith or religious networks, and the public (government) sector, as well as partnering with international and multinational development agencies.
  • This is a case study of NRASD’s experience in South Africa: our cooperation with different faith communities in South Africa, the South African government, church-based agencies and the Global Fund to fight HIV and AIDS, Malaria and TB. Thus, our experience may not be applicable in other countries or regions.
