Premier Alan Winde visits Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital  

Earlier today, I visited the Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital (RCWMCH) to help create awareness of the services available to children who are infected with Tuberculosis (TB) in the Western Cape.

I also met with experts Professor Brian Eley and Professor Heather Zar, as well as the RCWMCH Acting CEO, Dr Anita Parbhoo, to learn more about the excellent work being done at this facility to care for our youngest residents who have been infected with TB.
