MOBILIZING EXCEPTIONAL NURSES
TO HOSPITALS AND CLINICS IN SOUTH AFRICA WHERE HELP IS NEEDED MOST

DID YOU KNOW?

That there is a critical shortage of professional and specialty nurses, not only in South Africa, but all over the world?

46.7 million people in South Africa are totally dependent upon the National Department of Health for the healthcare services provided through 351 Public Hospitals and approximately 3000 Community Clinics. There is an estimated shortage of over 30 000 professional and specialty nurses currently employed in the Government Sector. (The patient/nurse ratio: 25 > 1. That is 25 patients to be cared for by 1 nurse.)

In South Africa, only 8.9 million people (15% of the population) have access to private healthcare as members of Medical Aid Schemes. (Patient/nurse ratio in the Private Sector 6 > 1).

“Nursing is an art: and if it is to be made an art, it requires an exclusive devotion as hard a preparation, as any painter or sculpture’s work.
It is one of the fine arts: I had almost said, the finest of the Fine Arts.”
– Florence Nightingale
