News Description

BUSINESS DAY, HUMAN RIGHTS-PAGE 11 The state, through the NHI, is seeking to fulfil Section 27 of the South African Constitution. This section provides that everyone should have the right to healthcare services and that no one can be refused emergency treatment. There are those Lawyers for Human Rights (LHR) who believe that the NHI Bill, released in August last year, violates human rights. Wayne Ncube LHR deputy director, said during an interview that LHR was concerned that the NHI Bill excluded asylum seekers. They would only be able to access emergency medical services and “services of notifiable conditions of public concern”.
