The National Union of Care Workers of South Africa (NUCWOSA) is holding its inaugural meeting this week in Johannesburg, from the 23rd to the 25th of November 2016. Care Workers have long been neglected producers in the economy for reasons that belittle their work in maintaining the health of patients in our communities. After receiving formal and in-service training, they do home visits to establish who and where vulnerable groups, such as pregnant women and children under five, are in their neighbourhoods, as well as to monitor people's general health concerns and link them to clinics or a hospital if needed. Yet, they are not considered employees of the Department of Health. The formation of NUCWOSA aims to unify the struggle for recognition of care workers.
