Adorantha Investments

Adorantha Investments Improving the quality of health in South Africa. Adorantha Investments (Pty) Ltd is a company with a national footprint that provides health awareness, healthcare counselling and training services. The mission of Adorantha’s HIV/Aids awareness programmes is to help prevent HIV infections and to improve the lives of those affected by HIV and Aids by providing education and facilitating the free and open exchange of knowledge and training. The counselling and health awareness programme is based on a holistic approach that encompasses diseases management which impacts on health lifestyle. The medium and long-term benefits of this type of approach are unquestionable. The company’s operations are managed and driven by health professionals who bring with them many years of experience in various health fields. The company aims to improve the quality of health in South Africa and help improve the levels of productivity in the country via affordable health counselling at strategic places throughout the country. The EAP (employee assistance programme) is designed to assist management, employees and their dependants and various stakeholders within the company in addressing productivity and absenteeism issues in a confidential and effective manner. Adorantha has established a reputation of service excellence in the past eight years. Community and healthcare programmes are designed towards prevention rather than treatment of compromised conditions, and a spectrum of services that are integrated towards normalising the lives of the afflicted, has set a pattern of excellent outcomes that has the potential to be repeated. These include areas such as lifestyle diseases and work-life balance in order to enhance individual and organisational wellness. These programmes include health risk assessments, training, profiling, education and awareness which is aligned to the country’s health awareness days (World Diabetes Day, World Aids Day, etc) and other programmes aimed at improving the general health standard of employees and communities. The company’s HIV/Aids programmes follow an integrated approach, tackling the epidemic on all fronts with various initiatives and campaigns that include education and awareness, comprehensive healthcare, risk management, community involvement and monitoring and evaluation. We have benchmarked our health awareness programmes against the best programmes in the country and we always aim to improve through training and workshops. Our programmes utilise specific core principles to enhance employee and workplace effectiveness through prevention, identification, and resolution of personal and workrelated issues. All wellness and health interventions at Adorantha

are planned, designed and implemented based on consultation with our clients. Health screening tests or analysis are conducted on-site at a nominated venue by our competent health practitioners in an atmosphere of confidentiality and privacy. These interventions have been reinforced through strong communication, awareness, education and prevention drives through varied mediums. Services HIV and Aids education needs to motivate people by making them aware that what they are learning is relevant to their lives. Empowerment is also crucial, as people must be in a position where they are able to take control of their sexual behavior or methods of drug use. Education is a crucial factor in preventing the spread of HIV. Given the huge numbers of deaths that might still be prevented, the importance of effective education cannot be overestimated. HIV/Aids and TB at the workplace Management of TB • Management of drug-resistant TB • TB and HIV infection prevention and control • HIV management • General health awareness programmes • Health roadshows • Practical skills sessions for doctors and nurses • Workshops and awareness sessions for lay people These sessions cover the basics of TB and HIV and bring together diverse groups of employees and communities. We also supply technical support and assist in creating health policies and protocols. Staff In addition to highly qualified doctors and nurses Adorantha can call on a range of skilled professionals in rolling out holistic services. All doctors are in good standing with the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA). Educators The health educator provides risk assessments and health education to HIV-positive patients and provides HIV testing and group education to HIV-negative participants. The educator maintains client confidentiality at all times. Counsellors Counsellors provide personal, behavioural and vocational guidance for individuals and groups. In collaboration with medical staff, they help to determine when detoxification for a client is appropriate and provide supportive counselling and referrals.
