What we do
Serving the people through the Rotary Family Health Days
RFHA's signature program is Rotary Family Health Days, a unique public/private partnership program that is currently in its seventh year of operation. The three-day, integrated annual program provides holistic, comprehensive, preventative health programs (both for communicable and non-communicable diseases.) The program leverages and inspires a massive force of humanitarian-driven volunteers through Rotary clubs in multiple countries in Africa and India.
Rotary Family Health Days program is now entering its 7th year in Africa and 6th year of service in South Africa.
The new RFHA SA NPC’s name change is inclusive of all Rotary COSA (SADC) countries in Southern Africa who wish to participate in the RFHD Programme in the future. To enquire about hosting a Health Days email us.
