Health care in South Africa has a long way to go

South Africa’s challenges and priorities in achieving the health millennium goals for South Africa, was the focus of a health-care symposium at the UFS Faculty of Health Sciences as part of the inaugural week of the new Rector and Vice-Chancellor of the UFS, Prof. Jonathan Jansen. The overall message was that South Africa has poor health outcomes despite good policies and relatively high health expenditure. Prof. Jansen (second from the right) said the biggest problem is the lack of service to people and the lack of respect for people. The other speakers were, from the left: Prof. Sithembiso Velapedi of the University of the Witwatersrand, and Prof. Salim Abdool-Karim of the University of KwaZulu-Natal. With them is Prof.Gert van Zyl, acting dean of the Faculty of Health Sciences.
