The SNF in South Africa
17 March 2018

SNF representatives traveled to Johannesburg, South Africa, to visit a variety of hospitals in the region within the context of SNF’s international health grant making activity.

During the visit in Johannesburg, our colleagues visited the Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital, which is the third largest hospital in the world, the Charlotte Maxeke Johannesburg Academic Hopsital, as well as the Rahima Moosa Mother and Child Hospital.

SNF representatives had traveled recently to Ghana to visit organizations which the SNF has partnered with and supported, such as the Orthopedic Hospital and Rehabilitation Institute (FOCOS) in Accra, which, since 2012, has been providing orthopedic services, including diagnostics, imaging and laboratory, outpatient consultation and surgical care, to adults and children. The SNF has supported the procurement of surgical suites of the hospital and the implementation of surgical missions in the region, contributing to the execution of more than 3,000 life changing complex surgeries on both adults and children.
