As a South African NGO, PATA collaborates with 364 paediatric HIV clinics across 24 sub-Saharan African countries, offering a powerful platform for regional collaboration through capacity building, peer-to-peer exchange and learning forums; supporting the achievement of quality improvement goals to effect positive change in HIV paediatric and adolescent policy and practice. PATA mobilises a network of frontline health providers and facilities across sub-Saharan Africa, working to improve paediatric and adolescent HIV treatment and care.
