The South African Chamber of Commerce is honoured to present Bernie Clark, Head of Healthcare and Risk at Alexander Forbes Consultants & Actuaries Ltd on 5 September.
Topic: Healthcare in South Africa, is NHI the step up to first world standards
Healthcare in SA varies from the most basic to very high-tech in both private and public sector. The public sector remains under-resourced and stretched contributing about 40% of budgeted expenditure to 80% of the population. The situation is compounded by the burden of HIV, TB and a shortage of key medical personnel. The South African government is responding with a far-reaching reform plan to revitalise the system. Is this going to work? What does the system need to be successful? Will we see any similarities between the SAâ€™s proposed NHI system and the NHS?
When it comes to health and the risk markets, what Bernie Clark doesn't know isn't worth knowing. A specialist in medical scheme management in South Africa and strategies for healthcare start-ups, Bernie is at Alexander Forbes applying what he's learnt in Africa to the UK market.
As always, the speaker address will be followed by delicious canapes and the finest South African wines sponsored by SA Wines Online http://www.sawinesonline.co.uk/.
