21 February 2022
In his 2022 State of the Nation address, President Ramaphosa reiterated his government’s commitment to the proposed National Health Insurance; he stated that “much progress is being made in preparing for the introduction of NHI.”
That the ANC government is still committed to the NHI should be fully expected – such a system of state-management of all healthcare is consistent with the prescripts of the National Democratic Revolution. A number of recent events serve to illustrate what healthcare in an NHI world will look like.
