The Igazi Foundation

Cause Profile


South Africa is a country with a dire shortage of haematologists, haematological support, advocacy and services. As the only dedicated Haematological Services NGO in the country, the Igazi Foundation lobbies  provincial and national government to improve existing haematological services and facilities for sufferers, their families and their supporters. Born in the Eastern Cape in 2010, the Foundation has grown to become nationally and internationally recognised as the  champion of Haematology issues, in the broader struggle for better health care services in South Africa. The Foundation is a  member of the Cancer Alliance and the Eastern Cape Health Crises Coalition (ECHCAC), both committed to making health issues an important part of the national agenda. Our current major initiative is the establishment of a Paediatric cancer unit at P.E. Provincial Hospital, Which we intend to have fully operational by early 2015.
