The worth of the pharmacist in NHI

  • Shawn Zeelie SAAHIP


The development of the National Health Insurance (NHI) Bill has involved wid consultation with broad sections of society since its publication for public comment. This process of consultation, which included the Presidential NHI Consultative meeting of 24 August 2018, has enabled government to ensure that all considered views are available for the review of the draft Bill. During 2019, the Bill was published for comment and both SAAHIP and the PSSA submitted comments on the proposed Bill. On 26 May 2021, all the stakeholders who had submitted comments on the draft Bill were invited to present their comments to the Parliamentary public hearing on the NHI. We had the opportunity to voice our concerns regarding the Bill.
