New roots for rural health: Challenging unequal access in South Africa

The Musina Model of Care is a proven strategy for agricultural workers based on distant farms, with the added element of being sensitive to the health needs of migrants. This integrated mobile approach provided core minimum services, including antiretroviral therapy (ART). By focusing on ten farm outreach points selected from a catchment area of 60 farms, MSF is handing over a programme to the Limpopo Province Department of Health (LPDoH) with a priority on quality of the service, not full coverage – which is the provincial and national government’s responsibility.
