Disability, HIV, and AIDS Trust (DHAT)
The Disability, HIV and AIDS Trust (DHAT) is a not-for-profit regional organization promoting HIV and AIDS responses that address needs and empowerment of Persons with Disabilities, through building and strengthening capacity of Disabled Peoples' Organizations (DPOs) in Southern Africa.
This is in fulfillment of DHAT's mission which states: To promote and facilitate comprehensive rights-based disability and Sexual Reproductive Health Rights, Cervical cancer and Tuberculosis awareness, HIV and AIDS interventions responding to the needs of Persons with Disabilities in Southern Africa, through appropriate support to Disabled Peoples' Organizations and other stakeholders and its motto: Creating an inclusive society.
DHAT was founded by Persons with Disabilities who have a strong foundation and experience of working with DPOs, supporting persons with disabilities (PWDs) to develop capacity to design and implement supportive programmes at grassroots level. Although DHAT was formed by Persons with Disabilities, it is a network and not a membership organization.See more
