What is

African Synergy Health?

NPO: 2023/521671/08  |   PBO: In Progress

African Synergy Health (ASH) is a registered not-for-profit, public benefit organisation. It is a dream birthed to address the exponential waiting lists comprising of thousands of Urology patients at our public sector and other African Hospitals.

The concept, created by Dr Viola Morolo, supported by Dr Guy Gaudji, Dr Marissa Conradie and Professor Koto has a BIG vision – to have zero patients on elective surgical waiting lists, suffering and often dying.

Our Vision

To have zero patients on elective surgical waiting lists initially in urology within our public sector hospitals starting in South Africa, and moving to other surgical disciplines and other countries in Africa.

Our Mission

To synergize African resources in addressing health challenges. African Synergy Health is a not-for-profit trust into which funds raised to deliver on the vision will be managed with utmost transparency and accountability.

Our Objectives

The objectives of ASH are to provide better health care and easier access to healthcare facilities for Africans. This will be achieved through improved service delivery, continuous professional development, and afr0-centric research.

Service Delivery

  • Implement evidence based clinical medicine that is acceptable, available, attainable, affordable, and accessible to patients in need.

Continuous Professional Development

  • Building capacity both nationally and on the continent.
  • Education of our citizens at all levels on care.

Research

  • Afro-Centric Research to design an appropriate, acceptable African model that will address the African challenge.
  • Create public-private hospital partnerships where public patients can be operated on at private hospital facilities which are underutilised.
