Site and Infrastructure

The site which is in 15 Parklane Mkhamba Gardens Ladysmith 3370 is situated at a new area in Ladysmith which is part of the growing middle class of Ladysmith. The surrounding homes are inhabited by middle income communities. The site rented to us by CMD another NGO which has as its aim to decrease the incident of poverty in the Ladysmith area. This organization is mainly involved in the training of volunteers to help with the HIV / Aids epidemic in the area. They are also responsible for recruiting clients through the contact in the church community. We think that the site has both experience and community support which is needed for these complex studies in the future and now.

The facility consists of 43 staff members that are trained and equipped with the necessary skills. The site consists of the following venues:

  • Reception and patient waiting room.
  • Counselling rooms
  • Examination rooms
  • Pharmacy
  • Laboratory
  • Freezer room
  • Data and Records room
  • Bathrooms
  • Kitchen
  • Offices
