Operation Gophelega

Operation Gophelega kicked off in January 2022 and is one of the largest grants Wits RHI has ever received from the US President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief and the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. This grant will run over five years.

Gophelega is at the heart of Wits RHI’s district support partnership programme and our largest health system strengthening initiative to date. The team are working alongside district health services in Tshwane and Ekurhuleni to improve and innovate the delivery of HIV and TB services. We firmly believe that innovation is not only about cutting-edge technology but also about imagining new systems for providing healthcare that yield better results. The team work closely with the Ekurhuleni and Tshwane district health services to improve prevention, treatment and care through the introduction of new approaches and innovative models. This has been informed by the fruitful district support partnership formed in Tshwane in the preceding three years and lessons learned during the COVID pandemic about taking services to the people.
