Atlantic Fellows for Health Equity in South Africa

Tekano, Health Equity in South Africa, seeks to inspire and sustain the changes South Africa needs, to bridge the enormous gap between rich and poor.

Through the Fellowship, Tekano is growing health equity leadership to tackle the deep social and economic inequities that characterise South Africa; contributing to building leaders and engaging communities across sectors and disciplines to address barriers that prevent people from leading healthy and productive lives.

We create a space for Fellows to connect with a deeper understanding of the systemic causes of injustice; fostering dynamic, visionary, value-based health equity leaders both individually and in catalytic communities for social action.

News From The Frontline is Tekano’s solidarity initiative, where we bring you news from the frontlines of local communities. We put health equity within Covid-19 on the agenda and amplify the work and voices of our Fellows and other organisations at a local community level. Not only will you learn about the resilience of South Africans, but also how their stories are shaping and reconstructing the persistent fault lines that feed poverty and inequality.
