Mission statement and values

Our mission is to sustainably provide more health for more South Africans for less.

Our approach is to empower individuals who choose to take ownership of their health journey by placing them at the centre of all decision-making, giving equal consideration to quality of care, cost of care and access to care.

As an organisation who understands the healthcare landscape on local and global scales, Momentum Health Solutions aims to partner with medical schemes and employers in facing not only healthcare industry challenges, but also socio-economic challenges associated with healthcare provision in South-Africa.

Our aim is to provide health solutions for the future which achieve two goals;

  • manage the health risks of the ageing membership, and probably more importantly,
  • create solutions that attract younger members into the market.
