  1. Developing district health systems in the rural Transvaal : issues arising from the Tintswalo/Bushbuckridge experience.

    Article - En anglais

    District health systems are increasingly acknowledged as a foundation for national health services based on primary health care.

    Initial efforts to institute a demonstration district health system in the Bushbuckridge area of the eastern Transvaal are described.

    These include efforts to overcome the organisational and administrative fragmentation caused by homeland and provincial boundaries.

    Close attention needs to be given to districtlevel health management, the complementary roles of district and regional health authorities, working relationships and accountability among professional staff from different disciplines, involvement of the community in a district health authority and the district health system as an element of local government.
