Have healthcare systems in South Africa failed?

Minister of Health Dr Aaron Motsoaledi is expected on Tuesday to address claims by the Health Ombudsman that the South African healthcare system is on the verge of collapse.

Malegapuru Makgoba told “The Modise Network” on Sunday that he is looking at around 2,000 complaints, with around 800 of them coming from Gauteng.

He warned that more Life Esidimenis are happening in the country.

Around 144 mentally-ill patients died when they were transferred by the Gauteng Health Department to unlicensed and ill-equipped NGOs, where many of them died of neglect.
