Disease Management

Our approach to healthcare is to teach workers how to manage their chronic disease. Employees learn to take responsibility for understanding how to take care of themselves. This helps to avoid problems and the possibility that their condition worsens.

A Workplace HIV Programme is designed to provide a comprehensive solution to client specific requirements aimed at preventing new infections, managing existing infections and combating stigma.

OCSA provides a comprehensive list of Workplace Programme Products including management briefings, policy development, KAP surveys, VCT and peer educator training. All the work that we do is goal driven with detailed reporting and statistical analysis of results.
