South African Health Journal 2020

The Board of Healthcare Funders (BHF) is pleased to present the second edition of the Southern Africa Health Journal. The breadth of topics is considerable, yet the common thread is ‘health system strengthening for the benefit of the health citizen’.

The papers presented explore emerging treads in technology and how patients have taken their own initiatives to manage their health – healthcare practitioners need to follow and adapt to this emerging trend.

Key focus areas:

  • Comprehensive primary eye care is a population health imperative
  • Improving distribution of health workforce
  • Out-of-pocket expenditure
  • Zimbabwe: the role of non-state actors
  • Collaboration and reimbursement
  • Primary care outcomes-based contract
  • Impact of underwriting
  • Impact of Regulation 30
  • Afro-inclusive pharmacogenomics
  • Chronic disease medicine
  • Health disruption.

  • Organisational impact on health systems
