About Us

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.
