News Description

MONEYWEB How has an NHI worked in other countries? In an opinion peace on Business Day, Dr Johann Serfontein, of the Free Market Foundation’s health policy division, says that while the country is currently focused on the crisis in Eskom, the nation seems to have lost sight of the looming National Health Insurance (NHI) fund, which, from a financial perspective, will be twice the size of the failing power utility. He says the public health sector needs to be fixed before NHI can be implemented and that the only way to fix the public health system is to introduce competent management at all levels. He talks to Classic Business Breakfast with Moneyweb about why the NHI in its current form would not work and compares it to the rest of the world.
