Epicentre is more than a company. It’s a vision. It’s about making a positive impact.
An NGO with 21 years of expertise in South African health research, whose journey launched in 2001 with the combat against HIV, and continued with battling the COVID-19 pandemic. We have conducted skilled health interventions to combat epidemics that negatively impact our people, such as 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.
We offer a wide range of services, including HIV status monitoring, private COVID-19 testing, discount testing through our studies and health research fieldwork assistance!
Our branches are located in Durban, Johannesburg, and Cape Town

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.
