This company was founded in 1989 and is widely regarded as a forerunner in the field of cancer management in South Africa. Over the years This company has grown and expanded into nine major units positioned in various city centers in South Africa. Their philosophy towards cancer treatment is holistic. Medical specialists, radiation therapists, technicians, counsellors, oncology nurses and other paramedical staff are all involved in both treatment and rehabilitation as necessary. Their emphasis is on working together and encouraging participation from all members in their team. It is encouraging that the cure rates for all cancers are improving, mainly because of the combined efforts of surgery, radiation and chemotherapy. Early diagnosis and treatment remains paramount to the successful outcome, which is best achieved in comprehensive cancer care facilities.

This organization was established in 1994 to help bring relief to the communities hardest hit by the HIV crisis. Formed against a background of economic curtailment on welfare spending and a huge increase in the number of HIV and AIDS cases, This organizationi initiated programmes to help HIV+ people in the local community cope with the emotional and financial strains brought about by HIV and AIDS. Focusing on the needs of HIV+ women and their children, This organization’s services aim to ease the burden of HIV by enabling people living with the virus to respond positively and attain the skills to develop their own coping strategies. Historically disenfranchised, disempowered and marginalized, women bear the brunt of the national pandemic. With health services already stretched to the limit and unemployment at nearly 50%, making extreme economic hardship a daily reality, This organization is working to fill the gap that leaves people with HIV & AIDS particularly exposed.Through This organization’s outreach programme of AIDS education workshops and awareness initiatives, staff work within the township communities to raise awareness, provide education and disseminate information. In this way, This organization works towards improving community acceptance of people with HIV and AIDS, combating discrimination and developing community based responses to prevention, support and care.
