Wits Health HUBB (WHH) Learnerships 2021/2022. The Wits Health HUBB (WHH) invites applicants to apply for Learnership Programme 2021 in Gauteng.
The Wits Health HUBB was founded in 2020 by University of the Witwatersrand researchers Dr Del Naidoo, Dr Lisa Ware and Mr Lethu Kapueja. Their passion for youth health and in particular, their experience in working with youth in Soweto on various community health research projects drew their attention to the reality that health and poverty are inseparable. The research conducted with young people and families in Soweto over the last 30 years through the MRC/Wits Developmental Pathways to Health Research Unit (DPHRU) showed that young people typically do not engage with health as economic challenges are more pressing.
