Annual General Meeting 2019


The HWSETA’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) took place in Bloemfontein, in the Free State, on 31 October 2019. The event was well attended by a variety of stakeholders from all provinces representing the different sectors in which the HWSETA operates.

Mrs Elaine Brass, CEO, shared with stakeholders the HWSETA Performance Information which detailed an achievement of 91%. “Our success during the 2017/18 financial year is a testament to the hard work by our Board, Executive Management, staff at the HWSETA and our stakeholders,” comments Mrs Brass, “and we look forward to working together in the future to maintain and further exceed this level of achievement.”

HWSETA Board Chairperson, Ms Refilwe Matenche welcomed stakeholders to the meeting and shared a short message of encouragement, “While we need to navigate the headwinds in the near term with prudence and determination, I look at the HWSETA with great optimism. The organisations credentials, competencies and capabilities, agility, supported by its committed teams and exemplary leadership, place it in a unique position to contribute to turning the tide for South Africa. Our mandate is clear and achievable and I am privileged to be leading the exciting journey ahead.”

Dr Freddy Kabambi from the Nelson Mandela Central Hospital in Mthatha, Eastern Cape delivered an address on behalf of HWSETA grant recipients. He highlighted the importance of investment in education and shared testimony as to how transformative the HWSETA grant was to his hospital.

This comes after the HWSETA tabled its latest Annual Report, which was received and approved by parliament. “The HWSETA is proud of its 12 unqualified audits and strives to deliver the best service to our stakeholders and improve the health and welfare sector in South Africa” said Mrs Brass.
