On behalf of the HWSETA Chairperson, HWSETA Board and Executives and HWSETA staff,
It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of our Board member, Dr Clarence Mini.
Dr Mini passed away on 11 May 2020 following a period of hospitalisation. He had been a valued member of the HWSETA Board during 2018 and was recently appointed to serve on the Board from 2020 – 2025.
Dr Mini was a medical doctor and a trailblazer, in the short time that he served on the HWSETA Board he initiated many innovative projects mainly focused on the upliftment of the public healthcare sector of South Africa. He also opened our minds on the training of medical equipment maintenance workers in public hospitals. This has the potential to be the flagship programme of the HWSETA. His intricate knowledge of the health sector and the people of South Africa made him an invaluable asset to the HWSETA Board.
He had a great sense of humour and was always found with a smile on his face or sharing a laugh. His presence on the Board was greatly felt, and his contribution was invaluable.
Dr Mini also served as the Chairperson of the Council for Medical Schemes and Chairperson for the Gauteng Health Accreditation Committee.
This is a tremendous loss not only for his loved ones but for us at the HWSETA and the sector at large.
