United Way South Africa Works For A Healthier Country
Only 28.9% of South Africans have access to private health care. The public health systems are extremely congested and there are significant financial barriers that prohibit the average South African from entering the private health care system.
United Way South Africa works to improve access to quality health care and improve the overall health and wellness of individuals. While communities determine the priority health focus for their region, we work with partners to create an ecosystem of health and wellness through creating economic opportunities that allow our communities to access affordable and reliable healthcare.
