Rarely will you come across a kinder and more empathetic physician. Dr. Hassina Kajee was running a High Care Emergency Unit in Cape Town, South Africa. After seeing so many people die she started looking at the stats and worked out that most deaths were from chronic diseases. So she opened a Low Carb Clinic and saw results really quickly and decided this is what she wanted to do. “This is Actually Real Medicine”, she says.

She reached out to Professor Noakes to ask what the Noakes Foundation was doing to take this to the poorer communities and at the same time started talking with Noakes Foundation General Manager. Jayne Bullen and local actress Euodia Samson.  Through the discussions among the three of them, the Eat Better South Africa program was born.  They have run a number of interventional programs in the rural communities now with great success.  Hassina was invited onto the Noakes Foundation as a director and she is also the medical director for the Eat Better South Africa Foundation.
