Endorsements for Health Care in South Africa
“Health Care in SA is the definitive guide to the world of healthcare funding. Liz Still’s passion is demonstrated in her ability to solicit views from across the spectrum and condense this into a comprehensive, annual digest. The most commendable aspect of Health Care in South Africa is that it includes divergent and opposing views to mainstream, conventional thinking about healthcare – this provides for a powerful and much needed resource.”

Neil Nair
Principal Officer, SAMWUMED

“Congratulations on putting ‘Health Care in South Africa’ together. It is a remarkably useful resource. Having in one place details of healthcare expenditure, the health market enquiry, implementation of NHI, a legislation summary and much more is very helpful. To have everything focused and not reliant on a random Google search will help me a great deal in daily practice”.

Health Care in South Africa is an invaluable tool for all health care professionals and anyone who needs to evaluate health care options either for their own families or on behalf of their staff, clients or patients.

The second part  of the book deals with the size and shape of private and public healthcare services, unfolding health care regulations and a description of how all the participants in the industry fit together. It also offers readers a guide to checking on the health of different medical schemes, as well as understanding the details of benefits and options.

The focus of the book is the regulatory environment and the current profile of the private health sector in South Africa. It also includes chapters on the funding, framework and delivery of health in the public sector and the proposed introduction of National Health Insurance.

The book draws on reports from the World Health Organisation, the World Bank, the World Economic Forum, the OECD, the BRICS Joint Statistical Publication, the South African Department of Health, National Treasury, Statistics SA and numerous published journals and newspaper reports.
