dc.descriptionThe original publication is available at
dc.description.abstractOn 2 May 2005, ten of the twelve chapters of the National Health Act (Act No. 61 of 2003) came into effect, generally with favourable reviews. I restrict myself to the motivation and ideology fundamental to Chapter 6 of the Draft Bill which (together with Chapter 8) was omitted in the Act, or rather, as the official government communiqué ominously asserted, ‘not yet proclaimed’. Chapter 6 deals among other things with the classification of health establishments as a precursor to the notorious Certificate of Need.
