Rheumatic Fever and Rheumatic Heart Disease Awareness Week

Each year the first week of August is dedicated to highlighting and raising awareness about an entirely preventable disease which causes unnecessary death and suffering amongst the poorest communities in our country. This Rheumatic Fever and Rheumatic Heart Disease Awareness Week (6-12 August 2018) and in memory of Professor Bongani Mayosi, who tirelessly championed the fight against RHD, we call on health leaders in South Africa to pay attention to the devastation that the disease continues to inflict.

Passing of Professor Bongani Mayosi

It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Professor Bongani Mayosi on July 27 2018. His loss to South Africa, Africa, cardiovascular diseases of poverty, his family and friends is unfathomable. Professor Mayosi will be deeply missed by everyone who had the pleasure and fortune to cross his path and will always be remembered for his integrity, scientific rigour and dedication to improving public health.
