Our Key Programmes
According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), we view health as ‘a state of complete physical, mental and social wellbeing and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity’ (WHO, 1948).
Consistently, we understand health to be an outcome of wellbeing, and a human right that requires physical and social resources to achieve and maintain.
With 44% of South Africa’s workforce employed through small and medium enterprises, big business and the informal economic sector, it is incumbent upon the country’s private sector to contribute to the total health and wellbeing of its employees to sustain healthy workplaces. With a healthy workforce, business maintains its productivity, economic growth and contributes to the eradication of poverty.
It is with this understanding that we drive the following programmes:
Rally and coordinate a united voice of the private sector on public health, well-being, HIV/AIDS and gender-based violence in all its forms.
Wellbeing at Work
Foster promotion of health and wellbeing for all by leveraging on private sector resources and expertise to influence policy, harness access to health and promote wellbeing .
Champion the implementation of a Private Sector Strategy on HIV/AIDS, TB and STIs. Coordinate a private sector contribution to the National Strategy Plan on HIV/AIDS.
Driving education and advocacy for a united understanding of the private sector role in combating gender-based violence and femicide.
