Health

Description

Considering the previous discriminatory apartheid regime and current economical inequalities, providing fair healthcare to all South Africans is an immense task. TransCape is involved with a variety of health solutions and believe that the best results come from working synergistically with others. We work with local hospitals, clinics, home based care groups, HIV support groups, communities, tribal authorities, local municipality, and Departments of Health and Social Development.

We provide an HIV counselling service (clinic counselling, home visits, school assemblies, awareness days) as well as emergency patient transport, and a service for cataract patients.
