News Description

MED BRIEF AFRICA Labour union, NEHAWU has announced that it will be picketing against the high cost of private healthcare in front of Netcare’s headquarters in Sandton on Friday. The protest will be part of a series of actions the union is planning against what it termed, “the prevalent profiteering in the private health industry”. In a statement, Nehawu called on South Africans to support the action “as a bold statement to the private healthcare sector”. “To the extent, the private provider industry shall continue to operate under the NHI, we are determined that there is appropriate intervention by the authorities to ensure that there is an end to the oligopoly in the providers’ market,” the union noted, adding that it would press for appropriate regulation of healthcare costs to ensure value for money and affordability for all.
