dc.description.abstract The main aim of the study was to investigate the incidence of genetic disorder at Umlazi Township, and the ability of the present structure of health care services to provide necessary genetic service to this community. The study revealed that the health care practitioners who come in contact with clients or patients with genetic disorders encounter problems in rendering care to them. This, they attributed to the fact that they themselves are not trained in genetics, have no facility or means or communicating genetic information to the community. The majority recommended that special training in genetics be provided for all health care personnel, essential genetic services be incorporated in the practice into the present comprehensive health care service and that genetics be focused on primary prevention of genetic disorders. en_US
