WoW! is a Healthy Lifestyles partnership initiative of the Western Cape Government and its valued partners. WoW! aims to enable people to make Healthy Lifestyle choices throughout our life course - from planning Pregnancy and Birth to Youth, Adult and Senior Years. Choices we make today about how we live (LIVE!), the types of food we eat and drink (EAT!), and how often we do physical activities (PLAY!), affect our future health.

WoW! updates:


The Wellness Team has been reflecting for much of 2022 on WoW! best practices, lessons learnt and what we can do more, better, different.

To strengthen and inform the above, your voices are key and very important to us. As such, all WoW! Champions are kindly requested to answer a few questions to let us know how your WoW! Wellness activities are going and how we can support you. The survey will take 10-15 minutes to complete, and the results will help inform the Wellness Team on what is needed to strengthen the approach towards embedding a culture of Wellness.
