The paediatricians and doctors I usually associate with, including colleagues who work in the public and the private sectors, seem to hold one of three views about the imminent introduction of national health insurance (NHI) in South Africa. Proponents believe that it offers the country the ability to finally meet the health needs of all its citizens, since it promises a single, integrated health care system strongly founded on the principles of a primary health care approach, the right to health care, social solidarity and universal coverage, and a not-for-profit and publicly administered NHI fund.
