SA’s national health department is, for the first time, the sole procurer of a vital healthcare service – COVID-19 vaccines. What lessons can be learned about procurement and private-public healthcare partnerships from the vaccine roll-out?

About the webinar

South Africa’s plans for a National Health Insurance (NHI) may have drifted out of public consciousness as the country’s focus shifted to living with and managing the COVID-19 pandemic. But, as the pandemic continues, what plans are in place for the NHI Bill and how does the country’s response to COVID-19 influence its implementation? 

For the first time in South Africa’s history, the national health department has been the sole procurer of a much-sought-after healthcare service – COVID-19 vaccines. What lessons can be learned about procurement and private-public healthcare partnerships from the roll-out and what does this mean for the country’s health users and providers? 

In this webinar, we invite private healthcare institutions, government policymakers, and civil society to discuss the challenges of standardising health care service tariffs, how the COVID-19 pandemic has shaped relationships between the private and public health care sector, and how this influences the implementation of the NHI.
