Free Health Care Is a Human Right

Date: 
Tue, 06/11/2013

The People's Health Movement of South Africa notes with concern that some criticisms of the National Health Insurance (NHI) fail to acknowledge that public healthcare in South Africa has been critically underfunded. Private healthcare consumes over half of the total healthcare spending in South Africa, which only covers about 15% of the population, leaving it inaccessible for most of the population. The public health system is therefore under pressure to deliver services to about 80% of the population.

Report from Baj who attended the National Roundtable against Metalloc Mining in El Salvador:
I had the immense pleasure last weekend of attending the fact-finding mission organised by the National Roundtable against Metallic Mining in El Salvador (Mesa nacional frente al minería metálica).  The three days were very busy, but very educational, with many good alliances
and connections made.  I will summarise each day, and then highlight take-home points.
