This October, Air Angels and the Breast Health Foundation partnered and turned ER24 H.E.M.S Division pink. Thank you to the organisations that made this possible: One Plan Health, Novartis Pharmaceuticals and Flight Share. The pink helicopters in the skies of Gauteng plus the education activations done at schools created an impactful Breast Cancer Awareness Month. 

Nurses’ training platform

The Breast Health Foundation, in partnership with Phakamisa, an AstraZeneca initiative, and Discovery Health, launched an online development, training and education platform for nurses and healthcare practitioners (HCPs).

 The platform will help nurses and HCPs update their knowledge and skills as part of their continuing professional development (CPD) responsibility. Through the portal, they can access training materials, educational and legislation-based content relating to breast health.
