On today’s show we have an interview with Tereza Hough – From the Osteoporosis Foundation of South Africa. We will be talking about Osteoporosis and if milk plays some sort of role in having healthy bones. The National Osteoporosis Foundation of South Africa is a non-profit organisation that works towards helping people who suffer from osteoporosis to improve their lives and allow them to live as normally as possible. Osteoporosis is a systematic disease that causes ones bones to become more prone to fractures, especially wrist, spine and hip.

Then we will be having a feature piece that was done by Myrna Lemmen a Dutch intern about the Hout Bay Community Health Clinic, where she did home visits with Dr Peul.

We will close the show off with an interview with Damaris Fritz – Chairperson of the Metro Community Health Forum. We will be talking about the Metro Community Health Forum (MCHF) Plenary that was held on Saturday 14th February 2009. The significance of the plenary was that it provided the MCHF with the space to dialogue and engage with the MEC for Health, Marius Fransman.
