“Everyone has the right to have access to health care services”
Chapter 1, Section 27, Constitution of the Republic of South Africa
Currently there is a massive gap in the quality and affordability of healthcare available to all South Africans. The proposed National Health Insurance (NHI) is expected to address this imbalance, but what will be its effects on both the public and private health sectors?
You are cordially invited to attend a lecture entitled “Is South Africa ready for NHI and the implications it will have on the private and public health?” The lecture will explore the challenges facing the healthcare industry and the potential for NHI to address these. Come and join the discussion.

The NRF Science for Society Lecture Series seeks to bridge the divide that exists between science and community issues in an effort to help society relate to how science, research and technology positively impact on our day-to-day lives and on future generations. The Science For Society Lecture Series has been developed by the National Research Foundation (NRF), an independent agency of the Department of Science and Technology.
