In a statement, Western Cape Health MEC, Dr Nomafrench Mbombo says the Western Cape government has re-aligned its community-based services to deliver quality care to the people of the Western Cape in rural communities.

She says Western Cape Government Health’s Rural Districts have shifted their focus of services rendered at community level to align with the Department of Health wellness initiatives.

 She says that Community care workers, now known as community health workers, were previously only tasked with supporting the members of the community through regular home visits.

Their focus was on giving adherence support, health promotion, prevention and home-based care.
