ASIVIKELANE

Funded by: International Budget Partnership

Programme Manager: Khuzwayo August

Sector: Health

We are pleased to launch the very first Asivikelane Health release in the Eastern Cape, a pilot initiative of IBP South Africa in partnership with the Small Projects Foundation (SPF).

 

For more than two and half years, SPF has supported rural and informal settlement communities in Buffalo City to engage and advocate 10 clinics for improved primary healthcare services. The impact of this work is clear in the Asivikelane results. Most residents say that the healthcare service and medicine they needed were available to them at their last clinic visit.

 

But inefficiencies at clinics are also apparent, with residents subject to long waits, often more than two hours. The results from Asivikelane Health serve to strengthen the advocacy efforts of communities and SPF as we continue to work closely with clinics to address service delivery challenges.

 

In months to come we plan to expand this pilot and test the model in other clinics in the Eastern Cape.
