People's Health Movement South Africa (PHMSA) welcomes the reappointment of Dr Aaron Motsoaledi as South Africa's Minister of Health. We applaud his commitment to the health of the nation and to the principles of Primary Health Care. We realise that the task is daunting: Dr Motsoaledi confronts not only a historically weak and critically fragmented health system, but also powerful corporate groupings who make profits from health care and have vested interests in keeping a two-tier system.
