Welcome To IPA Foundation

The main purpose of this initiative was to galvanise and unite GPs into providing better care. The IPA Foundation was conceptualised when prominent Independent Practitioner Association (IPA) leaders concluded the formation of an independent, unified doctor driven organization to represent the interests of GPs under the stewardship of the late Dr. Lex Visser. The original organization is a Section 21, (Now referred to as a Non Profit Organisation) and comprising of the three major IPA umbrella groups

The SA Managed Care Coalition (SAMCC), The Alliance of South African Independence Practitioners Associations (ASAIPA) and The SAMDP SA Medical & Dental Practitioners Network (SP- Net). Other provider networks such as the GP management group (GPMG) later also joined the National initiative. Some of the immediate directions of the Foundation of IPAs were to address the discrepancies in cost of healthcare delivery and any inappropriate upward variation in expenditure between and within the associations and its members. A related issue was to address poor quality practice and determine corrective measures sanctions to prevent this. We believe that associations have succeeded in putting in place the pre-requisites for Clinical Governance.
