Epicentre, an NGO with 20 years of experience working nationally in testing and linking HIV positive South Africans to care, is exploring multiple solutions to this problem.
Epicentre is a soon to be ISO 13485 accredited institution and we want to make diseases prevention accessible to everyone. That’s why we will provide the correct COVID-19 testing in connection with leading medical aids at reasonable prices across country, in Johannesburg, Cape Town, & Durban.
Epicentre has been in touch with its partners across the country and noted a drastic surge in the number of infections, this leaves many hospitals at risk of becoming congested. We know that hospitals simply cannot afford to waste resources on those that do not have a confirmed case of COVID-19. With this in mind, Epicentre will soon be launching their self-administered testing in Durban, Cape Town, and Johannesburg.
Epicentre Testing Will Be:
Clear Structured Testing Process
All Inclusive Reasonable Pricing
Test Facilitated by a Trained Nurse
Testing for Communities, Individuals, Families, Organizations, & Businesses
We will be using our new website to provide an easy to use system to pay for a Coronavirus test kits to be delivered and collected from your home. A trained nurse will screen you and facilitate the testing process. Your swab will then be taken to a lab we have partnered with and your results will be communicated to you by a professional at the lab.
The joint efforts between NGOs like Epicentre and the Public sector are desperately needed if we hope to gain control of this virus. South Africa needs to remember that we are not alone. We have the expertise and the necessary resources. Using a collaborated response together we can take on far more than we ever could divided. Using our experience with pandemics is a strength not many other countries can rival.
