Some of you who have been following my ‘NHI Snippets’ blog may be feeling frustrated because I haven’t yet summarised the government’s NHI proposal or begun to analyse its strengths and weaknesses.
Please be patient! – I’m trying to set down some background information so that we can have an informed discussion.
In the meantime, if you want to read the National Department of Health’s Green Paper on National Health Insurance in South Africa, you can find it here on the Department’s website.
The same website also has as useful summary of the main implications of the Green paper which can find here.
When discussing a reform as potentially wide-ranging as NHI I think it is important to have read the original documentation!
