Dr Simon Strachan, SA Private Practitioners Forum (SAPPF)
CEO and Business for SA executive, is the recipient of the annual Discovery Leadership
in Health Award 2021

Jointly
selected by the KZN Healthcare Coalition and Discovery Health, paediatrician Dr
Strachan received his reward from KZNDHC chair Prof Morgan Chetty during the
coalition’s hybrid annual conference at the weekend.

“This
recognizes Simon’s outstanding leadership during 2021 and his considerable contribution
to the vaccine delivery stream through Business for South Africa.  As such
this is an important award from colleagues rather than simply an award from the
funder,” Prof Chetty noted in his award citation.

Past
recipients have included IPA stalwarts, ASAIPA founder the late Dr Lex Visser
(posthumously), and Dr Tony Behrman, of CPC Qualicare.
