CSI and Sponsorships
We have a number of sponsorship initiatives that benefit not just our community of members but the community at large. The thread that runs through all of them, big or small is that we are always promoting health and wellness and making healthcare accessible to more people. This includes improving the skills of your healthcare professionals so they give you the best, cutting edge level of care and sharing information and tips around chronic conditions and other health concerns that are prevalent in South Africa.
Bonitas House Call
In the past, doctors used to visit patients at their homes when they were sick – these visits were called House Calls. Although this rarely happens these days, we are bringing leading health experts in a wide variety of topics into your home through the Bonitas House Call television show. This A-team of practitioners offers medical advice, tips and easy-to-understand information on medical issues affecting South Africans.
In line with promoting health and wellness, we have been a major sponsor of the Comrades Marathon for the past decade. As a proudly South African company that promotes accessible quality healthcare, this ultra-marathon is an ideal fit for us to talk about making good wellness choices every day and celebrate ordinary people doing extraordinary things.
Just In Case
Every year, over 8000 children die in South Africa due to accidents which could have been prevented. To help put safety first, we launched Just In Case, an initiative designed to take safety to 43 000 learners at 67 schools across SA.
The Bonitas Academy
We know that your family doctor is and should be your first port-of-call. This is why we offer seminars to groups of family practitioners across the country. Leading medical experts give insight into the latest procedural developments and treatment guidelines so that family practitioners are equipped to perform certain procedures in their rooms instead of referring patients to specialists and hospitals.
