Health Education at Your Door Step
Ekurhuleni residents are encouraged to lend an ear to Ward-Based Outreach Team (WBOT) members who conduct door-to-door health promotion and disease prevention education.
The WBOT members who are dispatched throughout the City mostly target taxi ranks, malls and residential areas educating the community on primary health issues.
The role of WBOT members include:
- Following up on patients on chronic medication to ensure adherence to medication
- Visit homes with infants to encourage parents/ guardians to comply with their road to health chart for vaccines
- Conduct health education on HIV/AIDS, hypertension and other health-related illness
- Condom distribution, which included condom use awareness and education
