Millions of South Africans have chronic conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure or HIV. The best way to manage a chronic condition is by staying on your medication. To make access to your medicine supplies easier, you can register for a free and convenient service called CCMDD (Central Chronic Medicine Dispensing and Distribution). CCMDD, or ‘Get Checked. Go Collect’ as we call it, allows you to collect your government-issued medication for free at convenient collection points.
The CCMDD service is even more useful to reduce the spread of the Coronavirus, as it is important to avoid places where many people gather.
Here you can find out more about the most common chronic conditions, how COVID-19 affects people with these illnesses, and how being a registered CCMDD patient can help you to manage your condition more easily during this period.
