News Description

SABC NEWS The ANC says its election manifesto has a clear plan on how to improve the state of health care should it clinch victory in the national elections The Minister of Health, Aaron Motsoaledi, says the present health care system needs to be changed in order to provide National Health Insurance (NHI). He was speaking at an education dialogue regarding the African National Congress’ (ANC) health policies in Polokwane where the party’s Ike Maphoto Branch hosted him along with Limpopo Provincial Executive Committee (PEC) member, Phophi Ramathuba. “In order to provide NHI, we need to change the present health care system. I did not use the word change, we used the word massive reorganisation. The present health care system needs to be massively reorganised because on the present platform, if you are going to put NHI, it is not going to work. The reorganisation must happen in both public and private, the story that private must be left alone it’s a myth,” says Motsoaledi. Meanwhile, the ANC says its election manifesto has a clear plan on how to improve the state of health care should it clinch victory in the national elections. Motsoaledi told members on Tuesday that this would include the re-modelling of the entire system.
