Who we are
The Catholic Health Care Association of Southern Africa (CATHCA) is the Catholic Church’s associate body for health in South Africa, Botswana and Eswatini.
We are inspired by Mathew 25: 35-40, particularly verse 36 “…I was sick and you cared for me”.
We exist to empower an evolving health care network of 200+ community-based member organizations serving the poor and marginalised.
CATHCA has forged a relationship of mutual trust with its members, which is rooted in pragmatic solidarity, meaningful accompaniment and commitment to the principle of leaving no‐one behind.
We embrace collaboration with like-minded folks that support coordinated efforts towards health system strengthening and are dedicated to uphold the right to health and wellbeing for the most disadvantaged.
What we do
CATHCA envisions a world in which even the poorest individual has access to good quality and compassionate health care.
Rooted in the core values of integrity, respect, quality, and accountability, CATHCA’s six programme areas entail giving voice to underprivileged communities and partnering with civil society, government, and development partners in an effort to transform lives and bring about structural change and a more equitable society.
