Introducing NHI

Posted on August 12, 2011. Filed under: News |

There has been a lot of discussion this week about the new National Health Insurance (NHI) system that will be implemented in South Africa – though it’s outside the realm of my usual focus, I thought it might be good to share this speech by Health Minister Aaron Motsoaledi, which answers a few basic questions on everybody’s minds, and the link to government’s NHI Green Paper.

Additional useful resources, if you are interested in more background on the origins of this system, include the Social Security and Retirement Reform second discussion paper, released by National Treasury in 2007, and the Reform of Retirement Provisions feasibility studies released by the Department of Social Development later in the same year. Both also show the links between health insurance and other components of South Africa’s social security system.

I am sure there are lots of other great resources and analytical pieces out there – feel free to share your views or links in a comment below!
