    Company Profile
Bang Health Creations, is a registered close corporation - focused on
promoting good health and wellness, presented through presentations
and workshops using various educational products aimed at motivating
employees to live healthily. These are offered by Drs Bango.
Dr Lizo Bango completed his B.Sc. degree at the University of Free
State. Together with Dr Funeka Bango, they further graduated at the
University of Free State after completion of their M.B.,Ch.B. degrees.
This husband and wife team has spent the past 6 years serving
hospitals and primary health care clinics in the Cape Metropole. Their
combined experiences confirmed the realization that for most people, their doctor is still their
major and trusted source of health care advice.

This realization prompted Drs Bango to come up with ways of enabling the healthy and those
already sick to take control of their weight and health issues in a non-intimidating, simple and
entertaining manner.

The EINA® Health Educational Products - are innovative and non-conventional tools that
focus on promoting good health and wellness. EINA is an acronym for Every Individual Needs
Assistance; an acronym derived to portray the need for simple tools that can assist individuals
to take healthy steps towards prevention of medical complications and diseases. Most medical
diseases result due to failure or ignoring of health education and health promotion activities.

                       South Africa’s 21st century health survival kit 
    This survival kit focusses on the top health problems affecting South Africa in the 21st century and how 
    these affect your workforce. Though employees are readily exposed to health information, few have the 
    drive, determination and discipline to practically implement that which they’ve learnt or taught. The focus 
    of the talk is to inspire, equip and encourage ACTION towards a healthier lifestyle; highlighting medical 
    complications, specifically, associated with diseases of lifestyle like obesity, diabetes and heart attacks in-
    cluding HIV/AIDS. The talk highlights various cultural barriers, perceptions and views that our dynamic 
    society faces in dealing with health risk factors like smoking, too much drinking and unhealthy eating be-
    haviours; not forgetting those risk factors associated with HIV/AIDS like multiple partners and reluctance 
    to use condoms. Through various hilarious, yet practical illustrations - Dr Bango presents this entertaining, 
    well-structured talk, not only to raise awareness, but to improve your workforce’s productivity, well-being 
    and morale. 


      WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS TO yOuR COMPANy?
     The health of your company, productivity and efficiency of your employees is dependent largely
     on the health of your employees. Most medical problems in your company have consequences
     going well beyond medical costs, for example:


             DIRECT COSTS (Out of Pocket Money)                        INDIRECT COSTS (Lost Output)

           ↑ Medical care costs                                  ↑ Employee absenteeism
           ↑ Medical aid premiums                                ↓ Productivity
           ↑ Life insurance premiums                             ↓ Employee morale
           Temporary disability                                  ↓ Overall quality of life and wellbeing
           Permanent disability                                  High turnover, replacement and retraining
           Worker’s compensation                                 Impaired employee functioning
           Disabling occupational injuries                       Premature death of valuable staff

     Research shows that the more informed an individual is about a health problem, the better he or
     she complies with treatment or interventions, leading to more successful outcomes. Employees
     spend about 30% of their time at work, so the worksite offers a logical and convenient opportunity
     to provide health education, encouragement and support for employees interested in improving
     their health and well-being.
     We trust that health and wellness in your company will remain a priority

                                                Education that saves lives...
