We seek to protect and promote societal health and well-being by understanding and addressing health inequity in South Africa, the African continent and globally. Based on personal and organizational values and principles that reflect ubuntu (humanity to others) and impilo (giving life), we strive to:

  • provide accessible education through empowering teaching and learning practices;  
  • conduct innovative, critical, cross-disciplinary and socially-engaged research and scholarship that informs public health policy and advocacy;
  • embody ways of being and working that enable collaboration with colleagues and our wider society.
