Media Alert: Premier Zille to Launch Western Cape Health Foundation
On Monday, 4 February 2013, Premier Helen Zille will officially launch The Health Foundation at a plaque unveiling in Stellenbosch. The Health Foundation was established in 2012 as an independent Western Cape non-profit organisation to generate funds for the maintenance and upgrade of the province’s health infrastructure. This will assist the province to channel the existing health budget towards the care of patients, rather than infrastructure.
Western Cape Health Minister, Mr Theuns Botha, Chief Executive Officer of The Health Foundation, Dr Joshua Fisher, and the Chairman of the foundation’s board, Dr Paul Cluver, will also be present.
