Abstract

The KaziBantu project is a specially tailored school-based intervention programme aimed at consolidating the practice of physical education and ensuring the physical literacy and healthy active living of school children and teachers. The KaziBantu Project (Kazi – active, Bantu – people: KaziBantu – Active  People)  is  dedicated  to  creating  long-lasting positive changes in health, and to providing opportunities for physical activity, by implementing a multi-faceted approach to address the health problems faced within disadvantaged settings in low- and middle-income countries. This will be achieved through two programmes: KaziKidz and KaziHealth.

The KaziBantu project is sponsored by the Novartis Foundation which is a philanthropic organization and strives to have sustainable impact on the health of low-income communities through a combination of programmatic work, health outcomes research, and its translation into policy to tackle global health challenges. The Novartis Foundation, Nelson Mandela University, University of  Basel and the Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute have expanded the DASH program into the Healthy Schools for Healthy Communities initiative, which is called “KaziBantu” in Port Elizabeth, South Africa. Dr. Ann Aerts is the head of the Novartis Foundation.
