Literacy is a luxury that many of us take for granted. That is why SADAG created SPEAKING BOOKS and revolutionized the way healthcare information is delivered to low literacy communities.

The customizable 16-page book, read by local celebrity audio recordings, ensures that vital health and social messages can be seen, heard, read and understood by everyone across the world.

We started with books on Teen Suicide prevention , HIV, AIDS and Depression, Understanding Mental Health and have developed over 100+ titles, such as TB, Malaria, Polio, Vaccines for over 45 countries.

The tragedy of the Life Esidimeni crisis has been unfolding in public hearings chaired by Deputy Chief Justice Moseneke since last month. 2 years on from the original announcement from GDoH, which saw over 1700 severely mentally ill patients being discharged from Life Esidimeni Hospitals into unfit and unresourced NGOs around the province which later had over 143 patients die from various reasons including dehydration, starvation & exposure.

SADAG has been deeply involved in the Esidimeni crisis from the very beginning, and will continue to assist, support and provide information from the various meetings, Reports, phone calls, marches, counselling, etc.

The hearings have included witnesses such as professional Psychiatrists, government officials, and family members, with the witness this week Dr Manamela who was instrumental in the Contract termination. You can live stream the public hearings via ENCA (channel 403) or follow various social media pages (#LifeEsidimeni) for live updates.

The Life Esidimeni tragedy can never happen again – SADAG is even more committed to keep fighting for and highlighting patients rights living with mental illness, including their families, to access to treatment and care.
