Maths tutor


Opportunity closing date:

Friday, 18 December, 2020

Opportunity type:


In the 80s, the country had Regions which were later demarcated into the nine (9) Provinces as we know them today and NPPHCN had offices in all the Regions in the country. With the advent of Democracy in the early 90s, the funding structure changed dramatically and financial resources were directed more towards central coffers of the Government. Organisations like NPPHCN were affected negatively by this and as a result, most NPPHCN Regional offices had to shut down. The KwaZulu Natal office remained intact and was reconfigured into a Provincial organisation (KZNPPHC) and registered as a Non-Profit organisation. KZNPPHC was involved in pioneering Community Health Care-Based programmes in the Province, including Community Health Workers (oNompilo).
