​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ABOUT HEALTH SYSTEMS TRUST

Health Systems Trust (HST) is a leading force in the South African public health arena. Established in April 1992 on the brink of democracy in South Africa, HST has played a significant role in the evolution of the new national health system; today, our strength lies in the knowledge, insight and experience we harness through synergising our research and implementation outputs towards our vision of health for all through strengthened health systems. Our scope of operation ranges from regional and national levels, through provinces, districts and facilities and into communities, and is expanding into the S​​outhern African region.​​
