Shallcross Youth Movement (SHAYOMO)
SHAYOMO’s multidisciplinary stakeholder engagement will see members of various organizations who work in Ward 71, eThekwini meet to provide insight into health challenges facing the community as well as the creation of an implementable ‘action plan.’ SHAYOMO plans to leverage existing relationships to ensure a workable action plan that tackles ground level health problems facing the community. Attendees of the meeting include: the Ward councilor of Ward 71, clinic and hospital representatives (from the RK Khan Tertiary Hospital), members of academia and representatives from local community organizations. Our meeting will discuss possible collaborations, such as the collaborative ‘World Aids Day’ event held on a local community ground, and discuss health concerns and environmental health issues arising in the ward. The event is a discussion of the culmination of efforts made in the ward by local stakeholders since October 2018, the success of UHC Day 2018, and charting the way forward so that ward 71 will be ready for the implementation of the impending National Health Insurance scheme.
