Our Partners

Social franchising is the model that underpins the expansion of various services by the Society for Family Health (SFH). While we deliver some services directly in some areas, under our New Start programme, we operate in other areas through partners who share our New Start brand.

Social franchising involves the development of a standard service for example HIV testing or medical male circumcision by SFH and the formation of partnerships for the delivery of such services under one brand like New Start.

By selecting our partners carefully, providing clear service guidelines and offering quality training to staff, we are able to ensure that our services operate in a similar way, to the same high standards, no matter where they are offered.

Our partners and the services for which they are responsible are listed below.
