Become a Nurse with Gauteng Department of Health – Student Nurse Intake 2021 Bursary

About Gauteng Department of Health
The Gauteng Department of Haalth is an institution established under the local government that dedicates itself towards providing assistance for the general public in the field of healthcare. As public servants, the department mainly helps underprivileged demographics originating from local communities in Gauteng. Oftentimes, these communities are prone to diseases, but may not have the financial means or accessibility to seek proper healthcare treatment. In order to improve these conditions, the department works hard to provide protection and sustainability for the vulnerable at a cost-friendly price, without sacrificing its quality.

Working together with other institutions and other fellow stakeholders who are passionate in this field, the Gauteng Department of Health has racked up several accomplishments over the years. Just recently, the department has been focusing on TB and HIV-related diseases. After spending a lot of time combating these two issues, the department has successfully managed to lower the percentages of deaths and contribute to stronger health outcomes in public.
