REA BUA! – Voices of Tekano is Tekano’s immersive & interactive monthly newsletter that recaps the advocacy activities of our community, towards achieving a fairer and healthier societies not only in South Africa, but also across the world.

Each issue is filled with interactive media, from photos and videos and links to articles and podcasts. It’s an opportunity to hear the raw, unfiltered voices of our Fellows, Staff & Board as they raise the health concerns of marginalised voiceless populations.


Atlantic Fellows are active on the ground, socks pulled and boots strapped, organising within communities for the benefit of their members. The road to achieving health equity is wide and long – but one thing Atlantic Fellows based at Tekano understand; is that we get further when working together in catalytic communities.
