South Africa has a two-tiered and highly unequal, healthcare system. The public sector is state-funded and caters to the majority 71% of the population. The private sector is largely funded through individual contributions to medical aid schemes or health insurance and serves around 27% of the population. The public sector is underfunded while most South Africans can’t afford the cost of private care.

LocumBase continues to create a supportive ecosystem. We want to help you and your family overcome the financial stress that comes with unforeseen medical expenses. We empower you with a solution that can help you extend your natural medical sensibility to the ones closest to you.

We have spoken to a seriously successful African Start-Up, TymeBank who has recently launched TymeHealth , in partnership with National Healthcare Group (NHG), and aim to bring affordable healthcare to your family.
