Accountability International (AI) is an African-led civil society organisation that works to improve accountability to the most marginalised. From our head office in South Africa, we conduct research and advocacy that allows us to do our work as a watchdog and hold various leaders accountable.
AI was established in 2005 with the mission to follow up on commitments to the AIDS epidemic that were made by governments. Our work has since expanded to sexual and reproductive health and rights, malaria, tuberculosis, and non-communicable diseases, as well as underlying causes such as inequality and discrimination. We work on holding all leaders accountable, such as business, civil society, funding partners and bi and multi-lateral development organizations. AI is non-partisan and non-confessional.
Today, we are around 7 employees located in offices in South Africa, Brussels, Geneva, Nairobi and Stockholm. The Swedish Secretariat works mainly “remotely” on financial and operational issues, whilst the South Africa office leads on mission strategy, research and advocacy. Brussels provides research development and resourcing.
