News Description

DAILY MAVERICK A lack of public participation and transparency, and the minister of health being given too much power – exploring some key concerns with NHI’s proposed governance arrangements. The preamble of the National Health Insurance (NHI) Bill states the purpose of the bill is to achieve universal access to quality healthcare services in South Africa. It proposes the establishment of a centralised NHI Fund that would be responsible for purchasing healthcare services. According to Chapter 10 of the bill, which deals with financial matters, most of the funding will come from tax revenue.
