Abstract

Humana People to People in South Africa (HPP-SA) is a section 21 non-profit company registered in 1995 in order to respond to the socio-economic needs of the underprivileged South Africans. Internationally, Humana People to People South Africa (HPP-SA) is a member of the Federation of Humana People to People found in 28 countries around the world and running over 180 projects in the areas of children's welfare and development, HIV/AIDS, Teacher Training, Farmer Training and Fundraising through the collection and sales of second hand clothes. Total Control of the Epidemic (TCE) is one of the projects of HPP-SA. TCE is an extensive and systematic approach, whereby every single person in the community is reached with HIV/AIDS information in a person-to-person and door-to-door campaign. The idea is that only people can liberate themselves from the epidemic. In 2008, there were nine TCE areas around the country each reaching out to 900,000 people. The impact evaluation was conducted at two sites, one a TCE site (Greater Tubatse Municipality) matched with Elias Motsoaledi Municipality (EMM), also based in a cross-border area in the Limpopo province.
