About sahba

We have long held the belief that education buys you options and that knowledge supports informed decision making – certainly in your clinical lives, but also in your business, financial and lifestyle endeavours. With this notion in mind, and fuelled by our unwavering commitment to the true success of South Africa’s healthcare community, we are excited and proud to announce the PPS initiative, the South African Health Business Academy (SAHBA).

We aim to help facilitate a curriculum of educational events of transformational impact addressing the business, financial and lifestyle challenges and opportunities of healthcare professionals as they are starting their careers, but also aimed at those established in private practice seeking operational efficiencies and growth, as well as mature practice principals contemplating retirement and possible practice succession.

Our Programme Director, Steven Macarounas, is a renowned thought leader in the business of medicine.

We are confident you will find the 2024 course programme of great value and I encourage you to review the themes and learning options outlined here.


It is a great pleasure and even greater honour to be working with the PPS team to continue to develop and deliver the SAHBA Course Curriculum for the healthcare community of South Africa.

The overwhelmingly positive response received from the healthcare professionals who attended the inaugural 2023 SAHBA course programme is extremely heart-warming, and confirms we are on the right track to fulfilling an enormous unmet need for specialised education of this nature.

The testimonials* you see throughout this website, and on other SAHBA materials, speak to the transformational learning experiences delivered, and that we promise for future delegates.

Our purpose is driven by the strong conviction that a good working knowledge of the fundamental principles underlying successful set-up and growth of a healthcare business will also provide the leverage required to achieve & maintain your desired lifestyle, and help create a robust platform for intergenerational success.

The SAHBA team look forward to welcoming and working with you in 2024 and beyond.
