What is it?

CCMDD or Get Checked. Go Collect as we like to call it, is a free service that helps people get their government-issued chronic medication more easily.

Eligible patients can now collect their diabetes, hypertension, ARVs and other chronic medication for free from a convenient pick-up point like Dis-Chem, Clicks, Pick n Pay or even a local spaza shop.

This service is called CCMDD (Central Chronic Medicines Dispensing and Distribution). But don’t worry if the name sounds a bit complicated, just remember the two most important steps:

  • Get your health checked.
  • If necessary, go collect your medication.
