National Health CareHealth care at national level
NHI - National Health Insurance
National Health Insurances (NHI) is a funding system that ensures that all South African nationals (and legitimate long-term residents) receive basic health care, regardless of their occupational status and capacity to make a straight financial commitment to the NHI Fund. South Africa needs state health care. Why?
Health care is a fundamental right - this is a universally recognised internationally recognised concept. Our constitution enshrines the right to health care. However, many of our humans still have premature deaths and unnecessary ill health. Serious issues remain, mainly due to an unbalanced health finance system.
NHI is essential to reduce the incidence of diseases in the poorest parts of the nation, as the vast bulk of the people - and the part with the most serious diseases - do not have adequate health care. Which health care benefits are financed by NHI? NHI will provide all South Africans and legitimate persons with full health care service packages.
This country strives to offer the widest possible spectrum of service.
