Welcome to the Road to Health website! If you have just had a new baby – congratulations! We wish you both a long, healthy and happy life.

This website was created from the Road to Health printed booklet that is given to parents when a baby is born. The Road to Health booklet is an initiative of the South African Department of Health. The booklet should be taken to each clinic visit and filled in by a healthcare provider as a record of your child’s clinic visits and immunisations.

Please make sure you do not lose it. In case you do, please ask your healthcare provider to give you another one. Alternatively, you can download it here. Booklet for boys, booklet for girls.

On this website you will find useful information from the Road to Health booklet, including information about immunisations, nutrition, your baby’s development, and danger signs as per our country guidelines and World Health Organisation guidelines.

You can also register to receive handy reminders by email so you do not forget your child’s important clinic visits.

The Road to Health website is endorsed by the National Department of Health. Please note, information on this website cannot replace advice from a trained healthcare professional. If you have questions or are worried about your child’s health, please speak to your healthcare provider.

For more information, please read our terms and conditions.
