The City of Cape Town’s Health Directorate is spending R7.9 million on upgrading various clinics in the city and expanding ARV and TB infrastructures.

Extensions are already underway at Tafelsig Clinic in Mitchells Plain and Mzamomhle Clinic in Browns Farm. Clinics in places like Elsie’s River will receive dedicated ARV and TB wings.

The city’s Siyabulela Mamkeli said we have identified dedicated TB and ARV wings as a crucial element in our efforts to effectively treat these communicable diseases.

Mamkeli said it is important to provide environments where patients feel safe and where their privacy can be better protected. Dedicated spaces also allow us to protect the health and well-being of the general clinic population.

“This will reduce waiting times not only for our HIV and TB clients who are often required to visit the clinic on a regular basis, but also other clients” Mamkeli added.
