News Description

SPOTLGHT After ten years as MEC of Health in KwaZulu-Natal, Dr Sibongiseni Dhlomo is now an African National Congress (ANC) Member of Parliament, and chairperson of the National Assembly’s Portfolio Committee on Health. Presently, the committee is considering the new National Health Insurance (NHI) Bill, with written public submissions closing at the end of November. “People are saying that it is fine for our domestic workers to have second rate medical care,” says Dhlomo, speaking from his office at the Old Assembly building in the Parliamentary precinct in Cape Town. “But this is not right. The Bill makes provision for everyone to have equal access to health care. It can’t be that I have better health care because I have a deeper pocket than you.”
