South Africa has a population of 58 million people, and more than 80% rely on the public sector for their healthcare needs. Enabling general access to quality primary healthcare with limited health professional resources, ageing infrastructure, dated legislation and under utilization of technology appears impossible. Over the past 5 years, through a bold and disruptive service delivery model known as the Unjani Clinic Network, we have empowered professional nurses to provide access to quality, affordable primary healthcare; while at the same time equipping them to operate and ultimately own container clinics in low income communities. In excess of 1 million consultations have been recorded through a network of 70 Clinics, and we plan to expand this to 1000 Clinics (both within South Africa and Africa). By enhancing access to quality healthcare, 6 million historically marginalised and low income populations will have improved health education, improved health outcomes and improved lives!
