The World Health Organisation (WHO) and Universal Health Care (UHC) is the effective access of all people to required health services that are of sufficient quality and do not expose the user to financial hardship. Not only does UHC positively impact health outcomes but it also has the ability to reduce inequality and stimulate economic growth through increased productivity. However, the attainment of UHC is not without its challenges and requires sufficient time, appropriate policies and political will. To create favourable conditions for universal healthcare implementation, South Africa’s healthcare industry is seeing some significant changes being made to its current regulatory framework.
