Dear friend of the FMF

This week’s feature article, written by Dr. Johann Serfontein, rebuts the recent article on the NHI by the Minister of Health, Dr. Aaron Motsoaledi. Dr. Serfontein provides a thorough examination of the structure of the NHI and, by explaining how the parts will not work, he shows how the entire structure cannot achieve the Minister’s goals. Using the twin lenses of administration and funding of operations, Dr. Serfontein challenges the Minister to answer serious problems in these two broad areas.

WORTH READING: Get South Africa Growing by Brian Kantor
"In my book Get SA Growing, I try to build trust in, and respect for, market forces by examining and explaining what goes on in our economy and how and why it could be better organised for the benefit of nearly all of us – especially for the many desperate poor. We should have more respect for the rights of individuals to make their own decisions and bear the consequences of them." READ more here.

FEATURE article  

Taking the NHI debate to new levels – DR JOHANN SERFONTEIN

The concept of Universal Health Coverage (UHC) is a noble initiative and receives widespread support in South Africa. The World Health Organization (WHO) defines UHC as “Ensuring that all people have access to needed promotive, preventive, curative and rehabilitative health services, of sufficient quality to be effective, while also ensuring that people do not suffer financial hardship when paying for these services”. The WHO principles of affordable access to quality healthcare is an absolute imperative in the South African context. The South African Constitutional principle of access to healthcare is also without question. The debate in South Africa, is whether NHI in its current form will lead to compliance with the constitution and with the WHO sustainable development goals.
