The South African Society of Ostomates

The South African Society of Stomates (SASS) is a Non-profit organization formed by Ostomates across Southern Africa to facilitate a "holistic" approach to ostomy patient care by bridging the gap between the private and public sectors whilst advocating for the rights of fellow ostomates throughout the country.
SASS aims to advocate and align the standard of Stoma care and services across South Africa which will be applicable to both the private and public sectors. Thereby aligning to the global standards set out by The International Ostomy Association (IOA).
SASS also aims to support all ostomates and their families with their transition into the new normal. Ostomates of all kinds are welcome to become members of the organization whether you have a urostomy, colostomy, ileostomy & whether it is permanent or temporary.
