The HIV Aids Awareness group the Treatment Action Campaign faces possible closure because of a lack of funding.
TAC says they have not received a payment of R6.5 million, which is part of their five year grant from the Global Fund to Fight Aids.
The National Department of Health is responsible for securing the payment on behalf of the TAC.
The organisation says if the funds are not received by the 1st of January, they will go into an unsustainable deficit.
The Department of Health and the Fund will meet today to try and resolve the issue.
