Health Services Overview

South Africa’s health-care spend is estimated at some US$39 billion. The health-care system comprises a large under-funded and under-staffed public sector, which supports 80% of the population and the small private sector, financed by medical aid schemes. The bulk of the country's health-care expenditure emanates from the public sector, with 50% of total spend.

The sector comprises about 400 public and 220 private hospitals. Private-Public Partnerships (PPP’s) are prevalent and have been highlighted as catalysts for improving, in an innovative manner, ways to fund the quality of the health-care services towards the goal of achieving a sound universal health care system.

The sector comprises hospitals, clinics, pharmacies, emergency services, specialists and medical consumables.
