Whizzkids Health Academy

WhizzKids United Health Academy (clinic providing youth friendly services, YFS)

WKU Health Academies are our very own youth friendly sexual and reproductive health and rights clinics situated in Edendale, South Africa and Jisonayilli, Ghana.

The focus in South Africa is HIV Counselling and Testing, one-on-one sexual risk counselling, couple counselling, ARV treatment and psychosocial support, family planning, management and treatment of STI’s and orphans and vulnerable children support programmes.

After 15 years of developing the academy and Football For Hope Centre to become the largest youth clinic in Africa, in April 2021, we handed over the reigns to Edendale Hospital and the KwaZulu Natal Department of Health. With a model ‘flagship’ youth clinic’ Edendale Hospital may ensure the long-term sustainability of the academy by incorporating it into their mainstream health services.

In Ghana our Health Academy based in Jisonayilli, Tamale, Northern Ghana – focuses more on sexual and reproductive health services, including family planning, Hep B testing and full medical screening.
