Dr. Kgosi Letlape


Introducing Dr. Kgosi Letlape

As a globally respected healthcare leader, Dr. Letlape, a pioneer and visionary in the medical field, will take on the responsibility of spearheading our efforts to transform South Africa’s healthcare sector.

Dr. Letlape founded the Africa Medical Association and has served as the Chairman of the South African Medical Association, the President of the World Medical Association, and Executive Director of the Tshepang Trust. Additionally, he currently holds a position as a member of The Global Hygiene Council.

The wealth of his expertise has been instrumental in the development of ActionSA’s healthcare policy, culminating in an expert-led process that relied on engagements with healthcare leaders like Dr. Letlape, who made history by becoming the first black ophthalmologist in South Africa.

Having co-founded the Africa Harm Reduction Alliance, which focuses on creating awareness and educating people about the need to reduce harm and promote well-being, Dr. Letlape is well-equipped to realise our vision where healthcare is not only reactive, but also proactively managed to improve the quality of life of our people.

ActionSA is committed to ensuring that every South African has access to affordable, quality healthcare provided by well-resourced and professional medical professionals at highly efficient healthcare institutions. With Dr. Kgosi Letlape leading that fight, I am confident that our vision will become a reality.
