Foundation for Professional Development
The Foundation for Professional D e v e l o p m e n t (Pty) Ltd [FPD] was established in 1997 by the South African Medical Association (SAMA). In 2000, FPD was registered as a separate legal entity (Registration Number: 2000/002641/07). The South African Medical Association, a non-profit company, has a 90% shareholding, while the remainder of the shares are employee-owned. FPD and HPPSA entered into a very successful partnership on the sub-mission of USAID proposals. To date the collaboration has been successful on the “Comprehensive Community Based HIV Prevention, Counselling and “Testing” project.
