About Us & What We Do

Welcome to the Islamic Medical Association of South Africa (IMASA). We are a non-profit, public benefit organisation that provides health and medical care to the disadvantaged and underprivileged communities in South Africa.

IMA South Africa has been around since the 1980's and is a national organization with branches in various parts of the country. As Muslim medical and health professionals we are committed to the values expressed by the Hippocratic Oath and believe that it is our responsibility to serve the community.


National Projects

The IMA is a well-known among government departments especially the Department of Health. Ex minister of health Barbara Hogan said at the IMA convention in 2009; “I must congratulate the IMA for nurturing a culture of professional morality amongst its members. You seek to give expression to the Islamic faith not only through the individual action of your members but also through your collective work as an organization”
