Who we are

The WBCG is a Public Private Partnership initiative established in 2000 aimed at promoting imports and exports through the port of Walvis Bay to and from Southern Africa. The Walvis Bay Corridor Group (WBCG) consists of transporters, clearing and freight forwarders as well as other logistics service providers.  Through its broad membership it offers a platform that facilitates and supports the fight against HIV/AIDS and the provision of general wellness interventions along its corridors.  By doing so it reaches a wide, traditionally and generally perceived high HIV and AIDS mobile group within the transport sector of Namibia.

 

Through this initiative, the WBCG is strategically positioned and offers an ideal structure to address HIV/AIDS in a comprehensive, yet cost-effective manner by combining both public and private resources and efforts. Through the implementation of HIV/AIDS Workplace and Corridor based interventions in Namibia, the Walvis Bay Corridor Group contributes vigorously to the goals and outcomes of the National Strategic Framework on HIV/AIDS Response in Namibia (2010/11-2015/16) and it demonstrates “a multi-sectoral approach” led by the HIV and AIDS/Wellness – Strategy for the Public Works & Transport Sector 2013 -2015/6 in action. 

 

Through the support from both the public and private stakeholders including the development partners, the WBCG advocates and facilitate sustainable HIV/AIDS and workplace wellness initiatives. These smart partnerships also aims to provide technical assistance and strengthen the capacity of the WBCG in order to enable it to effectively facilitate the response of HIV/AIDS and other general wellness conditions within the workplace and along the Namibian major transport corridor routes. The ultimate goal of this project is therefore to improve and leverage public-private partnerships and as a result, creates sustainable wellness interventions in the Namibian private sector.
