Matsapha Mayor Sandlane Zwane, spoke confidently that the council is ready to provide health services for the people that will be coming into the town following the return of AGOA trading. This was in response to USA Embassy’s representative Mich Coke yesterday, who had challenged Matsapha on the capabilities of providing more health services to the thousands who came into Matsapha. This friendly conversation took place at one of the factories in Matsapha, during the American Congress Visit aimed at seeing the operations of the Matsapha Mobile Clinic.
Matsapha Town Council is in partnership with Coca-Cola and the United States of America Department of State who provide funding for the mobile health services in Kwaluseni Inkhundla since April 2015. Since that time the free helth service provided by the mobile clinic have played a vital role for the town in taking care of the ever so busy people of the industrial hub. Since the project inception, over 11,180 people have received HTS services and 779 HIV positive people have been identified. The table below further shows results yielded by the vibrant team working providing the health services.
