The Public Health Division undertakes multi-pronged programmes addressing South African public health priorities across a spectrum of settings, which include Mines, Correctional settings, deep rural communities and informal settlements. The programmes are mostly concentrated on service provision to improve client- and community-level health outcomes for TB, HIV, STIs and access to universal health care, including Family Planning.

Further to this, programmes are tailored to specific community epidemiological settings and have a prime focus on co-morbidities that often render citizens at poor health outcomes by lack of integrated healthcare options. The Division prioritizes decentralized healthcare delivery to promote access to prevention, treatment and care modalities, including Voluntary Medical Male Circumcision and NIMART-based ART services.
