Catholic Health Care Association of South Africa
The Catholic Health Care Association (CATHCA) – “Compassionate health care in the service of Christ.” Our vision is to enable the provision of accessible high-quality holistic health care services in Southern Africa, especially rural and marginalised communities, in the spirit of service of Christ. Our mission is to affirm, develop, support and strengthen both individual health care workers and an evolving Catholic health care network, in cooperation with all other health care role-players. CATHCA is the associate body for health of the Southern African Catholic Bishops’ Conference (SACBC). It was founded in 1987 to support then-existing Catholic hospitals, serving as a voice for them, providing opportunities for networking and capacity-building, acting as a resource for government health policy, guidelines and strategy and sharing information on health issues. It continues to play this role for Catholic healthcare organisations and individual Catholic health workers throughout the region today. CATHCA supports Catholic healthcare institutions, organisations and healthcare workers who make up the Catholic healthcare network in Botswana, South Africa and Swaziland. These include hospices, orphan and vulnerable children programmes, home-based care projects, primary health clinics and care for the elderly programmes, as well as diocesan and parish health ministry projects. CATHCA is managed by a Board of Management while the day to day affairs are run by a National Office team based in Johannesburg. It is registered as a Non-Profit organisation (NPO) with the Department of Social Development and as a Public Benefit Organisation (PBO) with the SA Revenue Services (SARS). It has a Level 1 B-BBEE rating and can offer local tax payers a tax benefit for donations.

Monitoring and Evaluation Officer
Tinashe Mandikonza is a Monitoring and Evaluation Officer who has been with CATHCA for three years and is experienced in maintaining monitoring systems for CATHCA programmes through the creation of monitoring plans, logframes, theory of change and measuring the impact. Her journey with CATHCA has been a great learning curve for she also gained project management skills and is now an accredited assessor and facilitator. Working in a faith-based organisation has also taught her that being of service to others is the ultimate gift that one can offer especially in helping people in our marginalised community health circles.
