Annual Bongani Mayosi Memorial Lecture

08 January 2024 | Emer Prof Daya Reddy

Dear colleagues and students

It is with excitement that I announce that the University of Cape Town’s (UCT) Faculty of Health Sciences, in partnership with the Bongani Mayosi Foundation, will co-host the fourth edition of the annual Bongani Mayosi Memorial Lecture to be presented by our very own graduate, Dr Vuyane Mhlomi.

The legacy of Professor Mayosi will continue to have a long-term impact on the aspirations and success of African health sciences students, academics and researchers. This hybrid lecture will be a celebration of African scholarship.

Dr Mhlomi is a distinguished healthcare leader and innovator. He holds an MBChB from UCT, an MBA from Saïd Business School at the University of Oxford, and a DPhil from New College, University of Oxford.

As co-founder and CEO of Quro Medical, Dr Mhlomi is transforming healthcare access in South Africa. His roles as a trustee at the Bongani Mayosi Foundation and non-executive director at Percept reflect his dedication to improving lives.

His commitment to education is evidenced by his part-time faculty role at the Gordon Institute of Business Science and his founding of the Emergent Health Care Group. These underscore his leadership and impact.

Dr Mhlomi’s initiatives, like the MH Foundation, highlight his drive to nurture future leaders. Recognised globally for his achievements and, most recently through the coveted BHF Titanium Awards Young Achievers Award, his contributions to academia and healthcare innovation resonate as a testament to his visionary leadership.

Please join us for this lecture as we continue to celebrate the legacy of Professor Mayosi.
