  1. Inequalities in South African health care. II: Setting the record straight.

    Article - En anglais

    While Part I of this article analysed the problem of structural inequalities in South African health care, this follow-up explores feasible and socially accountable principles as well as a policy strategy to equalise existing discrepancies and disparities.

    In addition, the prospects of equalising the disparities and discrepancies are weighed against prevailing realities.

    The conclusion:

    For the foreseeable future the chances for equality in South African health care appear to be rather slim; a myriad interest groups with vested interests in the status quo are at play, opposing any fundamental reform to ensure greater equality.

    However, what is more important than the acceptance of this fate is our sincere endeavours to minimise these inequalities.
