Organisation Background

The Catholic AIDS Action (CAA) Trust was founded in 1998 by Sr. Dr. Raphael Handler, OSB and Dr. Lucy Steinitz. It has grown to be one of the largest NGOs responding to HIV and AIDS epidemic in Namibia.

CAA builds on the Catholic network of parishes, hospitals and health care institutions, and schools and hostels. CAA also works in partnership with other churches, faith-based organizations, non-governmental organizations, civil society organizations, the business sector and Government of the Republic of Namibia (GRN) line ministries.

All CAA services are provided without any iota of religious, ethnic and social-economic discrimination to the poorest and the neediest.

The CAA’s work and mission has four principal focuses:

  • Home-based family care and counselling,
  • HIV and AIDS education and prevention
  • Care and support to orphans and vulnerable children
