Improving Blood Cancer and Blood Disease Services in South Africa.
South Africa is a country with a dire shortage of haematologists, haematological support, advocacy and services. As the only dedicated Haematological Services NGO in the country, the Igazi Foundation lobbies provincial and national government to improve existing haematological services and facilities for sufferers, their families and their supporters. Born in the Eastern Cape in 2010, the Foundation has grown to become nationally and internationally recognised as the champion of Haematology issues, in the broader struggle for better health care services in South Africa. The Foundation is a member of the Eastern Cape Health Crises Coalition (ECHCAC), committed to making health issues an important part of the national agenda.
