Music Project

Through a collaboration with the Wits Department of Community Music and Community of Music Makers South Africa (COMMSA), an interactive, live music programme takes place on a weekly basis in the hospital. The programme has been successful in improving the hospital environment for patients and staff alike, and it has been extended to some pediatric wards at Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital
