Asivikelane service delivery impacts counter


Since March 2020

Asivikelane Health 2023: THANK YOU!

Asivikelane Health 2023 Thanks to the unwavering commitment of Asivikelane Health supporters, including residents, fieldworkers, partners, staff, nurses, and government officials, the quality of care has improved at clinics across the Buffalo City, Nelson Mandela Bay and OR Tambo health districts.

Asivikelane Health #22

Asivikelane Health #22 Services at Buffalo City clinics have improved since Asivikelane Health launched in 2021. But many systemic challenges remain. Collaborative efforts could unlock solutions to these challenges.

Asivikelane Health #21

Asivikelane Health #21 We are encouraged to see progress in services at the 45 clinics that are part of Asivikelane Health. However, we want all clinics to improve. To achieve this,  the EC Department of Health needs to allocate more resources to clinics.

Asivikelane Health #20

Asivikelane Health #20 By fixing appointment systems, clinics can provide more efficient services. But clinics have capacity gaps, and they need the Eastern Cape Health Department to help.

Asivikelane Health #19

Asivikelane Health #19 The EC Health Department is now drafting its 2024/25 budget.  We asked 446 residents who regularly use clinics what they think this budget should prioritise for Primary Health Care services.

Asivikelane Health #18

Asivikelane Health #18 70% of Asivikelane Health participants are parents or guardians. 92% of residents believe that vaccines boost children’s immune systems. With the risk of measles outbreak high, clinics can protect children by making vaccines more accessible.

Asivikelane Health #17

Asivikelane Health #17 Two-thirds of women arrive at clinics before the doors open. They feel unsafe waiting outside, especially in areas with high crime rates. Asivikelane Health #17 advises clinics on actions they can take to help protect women.

Asivikelane Health #16

Asivikelane Health #16 We call on the Eastern Cape province to protect clinics in the health budget 2023/24.
