CEO of Healthnet and Lab Medica Richard Ramrekha spoke about the ongoing service being offered to the TTFA and its national teams.

“This is an existing partnership that we feel very honoured and privileged to be part of. The physical and health condition of our players is immensely important and we have seen it fit to extend this service to all our national teams and existing national players. We have done this year the beach soccer players, the under 17s and the senior men and women,” Ramrehka said.

“We try to ensure the players are aware of the health state and prevention measures are vital in the life of athletes. Once we discover that any of the players are in need of further treatment, the recommendations are made and we take it from there,” he added.
