Origins of ECAC

Established in 2000, the Eastern Cape AIDS Council, (ECAC) is a public entity of the Office of the Premier, operating independently of government. It was established mainly to coordinate multi sectoral response to HIV, TB and STIs, in the Eastern Cape Province. ECAC was formed to help ensure greater co-operation between government and organs of civil society in the battle against HIV/AIDS. As a multi-sectoral body, ECAC includes government departments and the broader civil society formations, with the responsibility to facilitate implementation, mobilise resources and monitor and evaluate the delivery and impact of HIV/AIDS interventions.
