Our interventions have focused on Covid-19, TB, Sexual Transited Infections (STIs), as well as chronic diseases such as cholesterol, diabetes, and high blood pressure. We proudly partner with local stakeholders such as government organisations, tertiary institutions, community policing forums and local businesses to implement evidence-based health research programmes, resulting in positive impact across sub-Saharan Africa.

Our Programs

Epicentre aids communities and organisations to assess their health based problems. We then plan, manage and put in place COVID-19, HIV and wellness programs that have proven results. We are then able to look back on these results and evaluate within each organization. That is why we offer a comprehensive product based on a proven model developed by the distinguished Centre for Disease Control (CDC). We also implement skilled evidence-based health interventions within workplaces, health facilities, schools, universities, and communities, with the focus of creating social progress that multiplies into commercial growth which triggers positive impact for the people of South Africa.
