Witkoppen Health and Welfare Centre

Witkoppen Health and Welfare Witkoppen Clinic is a comprehensive primary healthcare clinic with social welfare services situated in the far northern suburbs of Johannesburg and also providing community outreach services to informal settlements such as Diepsloot. It is a well-established NPO which started in 1946 and has specialized in responding to the multiple medical, social and psychological needs of these marginalized vulnerable populations. Our coverage is 1,4 million people who mostly live in overcrowded shacks of 4-6 people sharing 1 or maybe 2 rooms with no windows for ventilation with no running water, outside or communal latrines and no electricity. Unemployment exceeded 30% and would have worsened as a result of lockdown, food is scarce and the migrant population exceeds 35% as foreigners flock to the “city of gold” for employment opportunities.

At our clinic facility, Witkoppen offers acute, curative and chronic disease management services which include: antenatal services, post-natal care and immunization, family planning and well-women services, HIV and TB care and treatment, nutritional advice and supplementation, mental health services, dental services, poverty alleviation with food distribution, statutory crisis intervention to protect children and an in-house pharmacy. Our community-based interventions include an orphan and vulnerable children’s project and HIV counselling and testing and TB screening project. Our multidisciplinary team includes doctors, nurses, social workers, psychologists, a dietician, pharmacists and counsellors. HIV counselling and testing services and TB symptom screening are routine within all medical service entry points.  We directly impact the lives of more than 100 000 people annually.
