Momentum Health Solutions announces new partnership aimed at improving healthcare for all South Africans

On 29 September 2021, Momentum Health Solutions announced that it will be partnering with major labour unions and notable black business leaders to improve healthcare for South Africans.

The objective of this partnership is to bring together a leading group of stakeholders who have the same positive intent and required skills to uniquely solve for a better future for our society, by improving our healthcare industry. The partnership between major labour unions, exceptionally credible black industry leaders and our company’s capabilities and management competence, gives us the ability to work together to create more health for more people for less. Essentially, we are gearing up to enable universal access to healthcare for all South Africans.

The health group, which includes Momentum Health Solutions and Metropolitan Health Group, currently serves more than 3.2 million South African clients, including individual consumers and employee groups in the retail, corporate and public sectors. To create this purpose-driven partnership, Momentum Health Solutions will participate with a majority shareholding, whilst closed to a third will be owned by NEHAWU Investment Holdings (NIH), the investment company of the National Education, Health and Allied Workers’ Union (NEHAWU), POPCRU Group of Companies (PGC), the investment company of the Police and Prisons Civil Rights Union (POPCRU) as well as individual business leaders in the health industry, namely Dr Gil Mahlati, Prof. Lucky Mathebula, Dr Ntombi Mutshekwane, Mr Mogologolo Phasha, Dr Sello Rathete and Dr David Sekete.

On a macro scale, together with Momentum Health Solutions’ strong leadership team and its wide range of reliable and mature capabilities, the partnership intends to improve the health of our society and the productivity of our nation.

We acknowledge that this change may bring about various questions about your relationship with our business and how it may impact on our partnership going forward. For this reason, we have prepared the attached Q&A document which we hope will help allay any concerns you may have.

We wish to emphasise that our clients’ needs remain our top priority and that we will continue to ensure your best interests as we transition into this new partnership. We will endeavour to keep you abreast of any further developments, but I also invite you to contact me directly, should you have any other questions or concerns that we need to address. Read more


Yours in health
