The Desmond Tutu HIV Foundation (DTHF) developed from the HIV Research Unit at New Somerset Hospital in the early 1990's. The Unit was acclaimed as one of the first public clinics to offer antiretroviral therapy to those living with HIV. In January 2004 Professor Robin Wood and Associate Professor Linda-Gail Bekker registered the Desmond Tutu HIV Foundation as a non profit organisation and established the head office at the Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Cape Town.


Supported by Emeritus Archbishop Desmond and Mrs Leah Tutu, the Foundation has extended its activities to include HIV treatment, prevention, and training, as well as tuberculosis management and monitoring, in some of the most vulnerable communities of the Western Cape.
