How to get to the MRC/Wits Agincourt HDSS research site, Wits Rural Facility and Tintswalo Hospital in Acornhoek

The map shows details of how to get to the various offices linked to the research site, from Hazyview in the Mpumalanga Province and Hoedspruit in the Limpopo Province. Commercially and web based maps will easily show you the route of how to get from where you are to these small towns, as will a GPS device, but this hand drawn map will ensure you don’t get lost from Hoedspruit or Hazyview.
