Govt receives poor rating on health service delivery
Health advocacy group Soul City convened a discussion about the state of health in South Africa.
JOHANNESBURG - Government has scored poorly in yet another assessment of how it delivers services, this time by a group of prominent NGOs.
Health advocacy group Soul City convened a discussion about the state of health in South Africa which included Section27 and the South African Human Rights Commission.
The areas of focus include education, electricity and transport.
Soul City's Savera Kalideen says they believe health is fundamentally affected by the provision of services like education, water and basic sanitation and electricity.
The marks awarded to each of the five areas range from D to f.
"For us to see that improvement, service delivery in each of these departments needs to be improved at a rapid rate."
Kalideen says they hope to present their findings to Parliament in the new year.
