Agenda 2063: A1

The paper describes a case study of a community health model that was developed and piloted at a University based clinic run in partnership with the South African Department of Health (DOH). The aim was to strategize, innovate and implement a collaborative care model strengthened by available technological resources that could improve the health and social outcomes of a struggling community. The 5 C’s e-Health framework for developing countries was applied to the case and compared to the Human Resources for Health 2030 strategy of Government to inform the development of a community care team (human capital based and enabled by an electronic management system) that could share patient health and social information, synergise resources and inform future community developments.
