While South Africa grapples with a 2nd wave of infections with record numbers of cases and deaths, it has been established by the South African Medical Association (SAMA) that thousands of qualified and experienced South African doctors, nurses, medical interns, and other healthcare professionals sit at home unemployed.
Meanwhile, the Department of Health has frozen 40,000 medical posts because of unfufilled Employment Equity policies.
South Africans are dying, our frontline heroes are at risk, and the government would rather play politics than take action.
If you know of any unemployed doctors, nurses, or other medical professionals, please ask them to visit HireMedicalHeroes.co.za, so that they can assist us in pressuring the government to hire them.
If you would like to further support this campaign, please consider making a donation to the Hire Our Medical Heroes fund.
All donations are collected by The People’s Dialogue NPC for and on behalf of ActionSA and are used for the exclusive furtherance of ActionSA.
