The South African Healthcare Foundation, established in 2012, aims to improve the quality of healthcare services and to improve waste management and environmental health practices. The Foundation partners with the public and private sectors and international funders to achieve this, facilitating private-public partnerships to implement key projects to improve health and environmental programmes. It achieves this through capacity building and training healthcare workers, providing diagnostic medical equipment and facilitating infrastructure improvement. Its Envirowaste programme, established in 2017, educates households in Mpumalanga, Gauteng and KwaZulu Natal about environmental health, waste management and recycling, and facilitates communal clean-ups in collaboration with municipalities. It helps to replace illegal dumping sites with food gardens, and trains and incubates local NPOs on sustainable environmental management practices, as well as planting trees and setting up buy-back centres for waste recycling, sorting and upcycling.
