Zithulele Hospital is a small 150 bed rural hospital situated in what in Apartheid times used to be the homeland of the Transkei, an area deliberately starved of infrastructure development and other investment under the Apartheid government.  As a result, it is one of the poorest and most underdeveloped parts of South Africa, with a host of social and health challenges on the one hand, and a beautiful, unspoilt coastline on the other.
