We're happy to announce that we're collaborating with our local insurer (member) Liberty South Africa for an important webinar taking place on Wednesday 9 September 2020.
The webinar titled “Home, alone and anxious – the impact of COVID-19 on mental and physical health and the importance of access to healthcare”, will start with an introduction from Gonte Sekhitla at Liberty Corporate, shortly followed by a presentation by Dr Leena Johns, Head of Health & Wellness at MAXIS GBN and Navlika Ratangee, Clinical Operations Director at ICAS.
Many aspects of employee health and wellbeing have been affected by COVID-19. It’s not only created new levels of stress, loneliness and uncertainty but the fall-out of limited access to conventional healthcare during lockdown, such as regular doctor visits, check-ups and screenings will no doubt have a significant impact on the health of populations further down the line.
This webinar aims to address the innovative approaches to employee benefits in this new world and the valuable role of telemedicine and employee assistance programmes in facilitating access to physical and mental healthcare.
