A TB-FREE Community
South African National Tuberculosis Association is a volunteer community based None Profit organization which was established in 1947. The main aim was to: – Provide beds for TB sufferers, Establish SANTA branches and give care to TB sufferers and their families.
We operate by these values

SANTA has a national footprint and infrastructural support comprising 1,066 Community Health Workers, 86 trainers, 200 counselors, 9 provincial coordinators and 16 Assessors and moderators.
Santa has numerous hospitals and 9 provincial offices around the country, which have served and managed to treat over 100 000 cases of TB annually over the years.
All 22 properties remained with SANTA when the NDoH incorporated TB Hospital care into its structures in 2012.
These former TB hospitals remain unused as hospitals. However, there is a need to renovate some of this properties and to some, huge amounts of land remain for building
