Savvi Sistas: This is how we help you thrive

Product info • 02 August 2021
Yay for powerful women!
August is South Africa’s official Women’s Month, and a time when we celebrate the mothers, daughters and sisters who have worked tirelessly to help us thrive.

While we celebrate Women’s Day on 9 August, we should honour, empower and love the beautiful and strong women of South Africa on the daily.

FUN HISTORY LESSON BREAK!
Women’s month is to empower and support women today, and also take a step back and be thankful for those who have sacrificed in the past.

Women’s Month is a tribute to the 20 000+ women who, on 9 August 1956, marched in protest to the Union Buildings in Pretoria against the extension of Apartheid pass laws for black women.
HISTORY BREAK OVER

Being a powerful female means being strong, confident and independent; standing up against oppression; educating yourself; making choices about your own body; and taking steps to ensure your own financial, emotional and personal well-being.

Here’s how GetSavvi Health can help all women thrive:

Accidental cover

Don’t let fear spoil the fun; allow yourself and your family to live knowing you're covered and safe. 

Our Emergency Hospital Cover offer you peace of mind in case of an accidental injury.

It includes an emergency casualty, emergency stabilisation and personal accident benefit.

Maternity and Family Planning

Pregnancy and having a newborn is a wonderful gift, but can also be a massive burden, both physically and financially.

So planning is key and best be prepared when growing your family.

Ensuring you’re medically insured can remove that burden, allowing for both the mother and child to be healthy, while the family is financially secure.

Our Maternity benefits caters for both normal and caesarean deliveries. It also includes gynaecologist visits and ultrasound scans.

General Wellness and Healthcare

The sacrifices the women in our lives make for the sake of others often go unnoticed, and can come at the expense of their own health and well-being.

We want you to know your body is a gift and your life a work of art. And we want you to take good care.

Women are also at high risk of developing diseases such as diabetes, hypertension and heart disease, as well as certain forms of cancer.

GetSavvi Health actively encourages healthier lifestyles through preventative care.

Our Day-to-day benefits, FeelBetterFast and Preventative Benefits precisely accomplish this by identifying and preventing the beginning of chronic disease and specialist treatment.

Counselling

Mental health and physical health go hand-in-hand, especially if you’ve been the victim of violence or crime. Winnie Madikizela-Mandela once said: “To those who oppose us, we say, ‘Strike the woman, and you strike the rock.’” Women are the rock of every household and are too often the scapegoat when things get difficult.

GetSavvi Health members, irrespective of what plan you’re signed up for, have access to counselling and/or treatment.
