Recent political developments in South Africa provide many opportunities for the development and extension of health sector links in the Southern African region and the possibility to move away from past hostilities towards a constructive future.
The need to address health issues at an inter-governmental level is becoming more urgent as poverty, drought and homelessness take their toll on the health of the region's population.
