NERCHA Overview

The National Emergency Response Council on HIV and AIDS (NERCHA) is a government parastatal that was established in 2001 through an Act of Parliament to provide leadership in the coordination and facilitation of the multi-sectoral emergency response to HIV and AIDS in Eswatini.

We coordinate the National Multi-sectoral HIV/AIDS response by creating an environment that supports effective service delivery of HIV services to the people of the Kingdom of Eswatini. We work in partnership with multi-sectoral stakeholders including Government ministries, Non-governmental Organisations, Development Partners, HIV sectors, and Regional structures.  The coordination occurs at two levels:

a) National coordination that is conducted at different levels by different partners; and

b) Decentralized coordination that occurs at two levels; regional coordination and sector coordination.


We implement this role through facilitating and coordinating the implementation of National Multi-Sectoral Strategic Framework’s and their monitoring Frameworks under the auspices of the internationally endorsed ‘Three Ones Principles’ for HIV and AIDS coordination.
