History of Activism
The core purpose of the AFHESA Programme at Tekano is to drive health equity and tackle our country’s legacy of deep social and economic inequalities and barriers that prevent people from leading healthy and productive lives. Our commitment is engaging, developing and supporting a network of globally connected and skilled social change leaders and communities, driven by a deep sense of social justice and agency across sectors and disciplines to address the social, structural and commercial determinants of health in South Africa. The Fellowship is a professional development programme building leaders for social change.
