Budget Speech Has ‘Unmet Expectation’

Nov 19, 2021

By Umamah Bakharia

Post Finance Minister Enoch Godongwana’s Medium-Term Budget Policy Statement, the health care systems and policies still face uncertainties.

Program manager for health systems and policy at the WITS university, Russell Rensburg expresses his views on governments plans for health departments in South Africa’s future.

“Budgets alone do not solve structural issues, but they do provide insight into government plans for addressing broader developmental priorities,” says Rensburg.

He adds that government through its address was supposed to outline their response on poverty, inequality and the healthcare system. However, no such address was made.

“I think more needs to be done to reorientate the budget to focus on the needs of the broader population and making sure that they can access those health needs.”

The Rural Health Advocacy Project (RHAP) is asking that government should start strengthen primary healthcare as this would assist in possible future pandemics.
