our

story.

On the 4th of January 2014, I (Neo Hutiri) was diagnosed with Tuberculosis (TB) and started my treatment. I was collecting medication from my public clinic in Bophelong township in Vanderbijlpark, an industrial manufacturing small town. The initial treatment phase of my disease was 6 months. During my treatment, my biggest challenge was the long waiting times at the clinic, I was losing over 3 hours on long queues with every visit. Most of the other patients that waited along with me had to miss work just to collect their medicine.

It’s really challenging having to plan your day around a visit to the clinic. We are very familiar with how demotivating it is to wait for hours on hours just to comply with treatment cycles when you could be at work. We then started being curious about what can be done and how we can play an active role in solving this challenge. Our journey started with visiting clinics and really paying attention to why this problem still persists.
