We’re pleased to announce the official opening of a new North Star Alliance Roadside Wellness Centre in Ngodwana, South Africa. The centre, which is located on the busy N4 Highway in the province of Mpumalanga, is ideally situated to provide health services to mobile workers moving between cities including Johannesburg and Pretoria, and the Mozambican capital of Maputo.
The site is one of 5 new Roadside Wellness Centres opening in South Africa as part of a collaborative initiative with the Wits Reproductive Health and HIV Institute (WRHI), PEPFAR and USAID. In September, the first of these 5, and our new flagship clinic for Southern Africa, was opened in City Deep, just south of Johannesburg. In addition to support from PEPFAR, USAID, and WRHI, the new clinic received tremendous support from Sappi, a paper mill located near the site.
