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.
