The BroadReach Group are excited to announce the appointment of Dhirisha Naidoo as our new Chief of Party (COP) for our PEPFAR funded USAID APACE program in South Africa.
Dhirisha has been an integral part of the BroadReach family for almost 10 years. Most recently, as Deputy Chief of Party, she has played a key leadership role for the APACE program with a focus on Programme Delivery as well as MER&SI. She brings a wealth of experience to the Chief of Party role, with over 17 years of public health experience, having worked in the South African Department of Health before moving into the PEPFAR implementing partner with BroadReach. Dhirisha’s in-depth knowledge of the public health system in South Africa and strong Department of Health relationships are underpinned by her clinical background as a professional nurse.
Most importantly, Dhirisha lives and models our core values. Dhirisha is bold, she is enterprising, she is a learner, she is her word, she is collaborative, and she is compassionate.
We are fortunate to have a leader such as Dhirisha at the helm of our APACE work, one of the biggest PEPFAR funded programs in the world and our flagship program. We congratulate her on this new chapter at BroadReach in this critical leadership role.
