iNHEMACO SA had the pleasure of accompanying the Teranga Gold Team on every step of their African journey to success. From humble beginnings on the Sabodala project in a make-shift mud and thatch bungalow clinic to the modern facility that presently serves the mine, and on to the grass root beginnings of the Wahgnion project, Burkina Faso. We highly value our long standing relationship with a mining champion who succeeded in commissioning a lucrative gold mine in a challenging environment.
Our success can largely be attributed to the management team’s unwavering commitment to healthcare for all and our ability to deliver on these commitments.

Flourishing Beyond Borders
iNHEMACO is passionate about making your experience as a short or long term traveller as safe and healthy as possible and in doing so, make the world a better place. No one ever embarks on a journey however short or long and returns “in the same skin”. We rub off on those we encounter in far-off lands and return with a thin new layer obtained from those we interacted with.
In spite of the massive numbers of people who travel, very little research is done on the impact travel has on our psychological well-being and development.
iNHEMACO is proud to assist a young researcher from the University of the North West in her research on the character strengths, resilience and well-being of accompanying expatriate partners during international relocation.

Malaria, the Disease
Malaria is a parasitic infection of the health of red blood cells. It is acquired via the bite of female Anopheles mosquitoes. The ecology of the disease is complex, depending on factors such as altitude, climate, mosquito breeding sites and human behaviour for successful transmission of the disease in an area. There are four types of parasites namely vivax, malariae, ovale and Plasmodium Falciparum. Vivax, malariae and ovale can cause serious illness but seldom cause death in otherwise healthy patients. P. Falciparum on the other hand can cause cerebral malaria and ultimately death in a relatively short period of time if left untreated. Cerebral malaria and anopheles mosquitoes can be found in most African countries.

- Listeriosis is caused by a BACTERIA called Listeria monocytogenes.
- It is one of the leading bacterial causes of food-borne deaths in the world.
- South Africa has recently seen a tremendous increase in the number of reported cases.
- The most common foods to be contaminated are raw or unpasteurised milk as well as soft cheeses‚ vegetables‚ processed foods and ready-to-eat meats and smoked fish products.
- People who are especially at risk include the very young, the old, the immunocompromised and pregnant women.
- Symptoms reported by non-pregnant patients include gastro-enteritis, headache, seizures, confusion and a stiff neck. (Meningism)
- Pregnant women usually only get flu like symptoms. However, maternal infection can lead to health issues in the baby, including miscarriage, preterm delivery and severe infection – ±30% of current cases in the RSA is in new-borns.
- Symptoms usually commence 1 – 4 weeks after ingestion of contaminated food.
- There is no vaccine available but the disease responds to commonly available antibiotics.
- If you believe that either you or a loved one has symptoms suggestive of Listeriosis, contact your health care provider immediately.
Ebola Virus Disease Information
Ebola / Viral Haemorrhagic Fever in Perspective
What is a Viral Haemorrhagic Fever? Viral Haemorrhagic fevers (VHFs) refer to a group of illnesses that are caused by several distinct families of viruses. In general, the term “viral hemorrhagic fever” is used to describe a severe multisystem syndrome (multisystem in that multiple organ systems in the body are affected). Characteristically, the overall vascular system is damaged, and the body’s ability to regulate itself is impaired. These symptoms are often accompanied by hemorrhage (bleeding); however, the bleeding is itself rarely life-threatening. While some types of hemorrhagic fever viruses can cause relatively mild illnesses, many of these viruses cause severe, life-threatening disease.
