A description of recent developments in emergency medicine and prehospital care in the new South Africa is detailed.
As South Africa creates a new integrated health care system with equal access for all citizens, expansion of emergency care services to previously disadvantaged populations is occurring.
To illustrate current disparities, a comparison of 2 regional systems of emergency medicine is included.
The challenges involved and possible future directions in this effort are discussed.
