Health - Novo Nordisk & South African Haemophilia Foundation launches novoGo programme

On the show today, we heard from Dr Lindiwe Pemba - Medical Adviser at Novo Nordisk. We were talking about the novoGo programme. Last week Novo Nordisk, a world leader in haemophilia and diabetes care, working in association with the South African Haemophilia Foundation launched a programme called novoGo that aims to facilitate treatment of a bleeding incident as early as possible, by providing transport money to haemophilia patients that experience emergency bleed. The programme has been rolled out in four centres namely Charlotte Maxeke Hospital, Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital, Polokwane General Hospital and Groote Schuur Hospital. For further information you can contact South African Haemophilia Foundation on (021) 785 7140 or visit
