Presidential Health Summit report released

Presidential Health Summit report releasedMahikeng Hospital’s operating theatres have only just started to run again. There’s only a temporary air-conditioning unit in place instead of a specialised chiller unit. It’s a stop-gap measure after services here came to a complete halt for two months.

Late last year several hundred people who work or have connections with the health sector gathered in Johannesburg under the banner of the “Presidential Health Summit”. Yesterday Health Minister Dr Aaron Motsoaledi released a report which “contains the output of the deliberations of the first Presidential Health Summit held in Boksburg on 19 and 20 October”.
