Imperial's newest Unjani Clinics offer healthcare hope to poor in Tembisa and Daveyton

[Johannesburg, 20 November 2014] - Two new nurse-owned and operated community clinics have opened in Tembisa and Daveyton in Gauteng. They form part of a growing network of "Unjani Clinics" that are the brainchild of Imperial Health Sciences, and through which the firm is aiming to "alleviate congestion" in South Africa's stretched and under-resourced public healthcare system.

Imperial Health Sciences managing director Dr Iain Barton reveals these two new facilities join six other Unjani Clinics that are already operating successfully around South Africa, and relieving the strain on state facilities.

When Imperial launched its Unjani Clinics project two years ago, it became the first private sector organisation in South Africa to start a primary healthcare network that is run and owned by professional nurses. Barton explains the concept follows the principles of a social franchise, which is easily deployable in rural communities, and which, in addition to providing quality healthcare and essential medicines to the poor at the point of need, also empowers black women and creates jobs.
