Letter from the SA NCDs+ Alliance to the former President’s Special Advisor on Social Policy 2018, Professor Olive Shisana. Shisana convened the working group for the summit.
People living with NCDs+ and those who use the public health system were not given a place to attend. This group was later to be called “users” with a chair appointed by Shisana.
This letter is part of a protest to exclusion and to challenge the methodology and outcomes of the Presidential Health Summit.
The Health Compact is an outcome that is stated in the National Development Plan[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
