South African Communist Party underlines the findings of the Health Market Inquiry report, indicating to the need for a system of universal quality health care.

The South African Communist Party (SACP) welcomed the provisional report of the Health Market Inquiry (HMI) into the rising and astronomical costs of private health care - which `only a minority of South Africans can afford`. The findings of the report released on July 6th strongly supports the case for South Africa to move decisively forward to a system of universal quality health care through a National Health Insurance (NHI) programme.

sacpThe South African Communist Party has noted the pursuit of an orchestrated campaign against the introduction of the National Health Insurance (NHI). The SACP is combat ready and will take the capitalist profiteers - who benefit from the status quo - and their agents head-on until the NHI is successfully implemented. The SACP is therefore encouraging the Minister of Health, Dr Aaron Motsoaledi to release the NHI Bill for and in the interests of the workers and poor, the majority of our nation.
