A look at healthcare worker mental health in South Africa.
Dr Zolelwa Sifumba (global health advocate)
Dr Lerato Khatle (founder of YoungMD)
Healthcare workers give so much of themselves daily to their work, and face pressures on their mental, not just physical health and wellbeing.
In this episode of GE Vital Voices we speak to experts about why these challenges exist, and what we can do as a community and a healthcare system, to make things better.
Dr Zolelwa Sifumba is a doctor and global health advocate, who opens up and shares her experience of contracting TB and Covid-19 while practicing medicine.
Dr Lerato Khatle is the founder of YoungMD and discusses how we can better embrace and support healthcare workers as whole people.
