The Social Collective teamed up with Rotary to facilitate the annual Health days particularly covering 17 hard to reach sites in Gauteng and the launch site in Tulamahashe in Bushbuckridge. Over the 3 days, The Social collective team recorded data on nearly 4000 community members including children who received much needed health service from different health practitioners. The data collection team comprised of unemployed youth sourced from the local community availing them an opportunity to learn transferable skills hence improving their employability status. The raw data was then recorded electronically enabling the national team to compile a report on all health sites in each province. This data will be vital for the Health Department as it highlights prevailing health issues for different age groups which will allow them to plan effectively for each province. The Social looks forward to working further with Rotary Family Health Days in upcoming initiatives.
