THE IMPACT OF OUR INITIATIVE

Since the launch of Phakamisa in 2011, more than 600 healthcre professionals have been provided with courses and 400 people have been trained as Navigators. Continued education for the Navigtor has also covered socially relevant issues such as cervical cancer, HIV, gender-based violence and child abuse.

Phakamisa is derived from a zulu word which means uplifment.

BREAST CANCER

Breast cancer is the most common cancer and greatest cause of cancer death among women in South Africa. Poor education and lack of awareness of breast health issues, cultural barriers and no access to healthcare facilities have hindered efforts by the government to combat the disease among low-income communities.
