By  Joshua Murphy  |  | 

Purpose: The leader-board provides visualisation of facility ranking by national, provincial and district levels. The desired outcome is recognise and motivate the teams of healthcare workers in facilities striving to reach the ambitious UNAIDS 90-90-90 targets for December 2020, more so in this difficult time of COVID-19. This effort funded by PEFPAR through USAID, is led by the South African Department of Health an the Operation Phuthuma team.

Context: South African Department of Health, while facing the impact of COVID-19, is still trying to provide HIV, TB and primary healthcare services across the country. Now more than ever, recognition and support of healthcare workers is vitally important. This Leader-board and regular newsletters will be an avenue to name and fame and recognise facilities and the teams working in them towards a healthy life for all South Africans

Target audience: The intended audience for this dashboard are facility-based healthcare workers who want to see where the facility stands country, province and district-wide as well as community members, government leaders and members of civil society.


  • The measure of performance will vary – and the Leader-board (dashboard) is designed to be simple and updateable depending on priorities. The current measure and date range should be indicated at the top.
  • National view will show the top 100 facilities
  • Select a province and it will show the facilities in that province that are in the top 100 (a subset)
  • Provincial views will show the top 100 facilities per province and allow drilling down to specific districts
  • Questions to – [email protected] or [email protected] or [email protected]
