About the IMA

In the early 1970's, a few Muslim doctors, noting with concern the disparate health services under the Apartheid government of South Africa, embarked upon the establishment of the modest Sunday clinic at Braemar on the South Coast of Natal.

This was to cater for the needs of a black rural community which had virtually no access to any form of health services. The initial name of the group was "Lajnatul Atibba" (Doctors Committee) and it served as the forerunner for the formation of the IMA in 1980.
