Non-communicable diseases (NCDs) such as diabetes and hypertension present a huge health burden in South Africa and people living in rural areas are equally at risk of NCDs as those in urban areas. Both these diseases are major targets in the Foundation’s flagship health programme, Health in Every Hut (HiEH).
The Foundation is helping to reach people sitting at home with unknown health risks or diseases with its HiEH programme, in which every household is screened, mapped and those at risk referred for treatment and then followed up. This work is part of the Lilly NCD-Partnership. HiEH now covers seven areas across the Mbashe district – Hobeni, Bomvana, Madwaleni, Nkanya, Soga, Melitafa, Xhora – encompassing approximately 45,000 people.
