South to South (S2S) is a programme in the Department of Paediatrics and Child Health in the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences at Stellenbosch University near Cape Town, South Africa. S2S was established in 2006 to provide paediatric expertise to multidisciplinary teams in Africa caring for children in ARV programmes. S2S now supports the South African national Department of Health to improve HIV/TB health services for mothers, infants, children and adolescents. Since its initial focus on the training of health workers, the programme has diversified to ensure knowledge translation and implementation, and to build the evidence base for effective in-service training of health workers.
