Wiser Seminar 1 September 2014: The Broken Thread – Primary Health Care, Social Justice and the Dignity of the Health Worker

Wiser Seminar 1 September 2014: The Broken Thread – Primary Health Care, Social Justice and the Dignity of the Health Worker

Tonight Mark Heywood from SECTION27 speaks at a public WISER seminar on the missing link in realising the right to health: The Health Care Worker. RHAP and its rural partners have demonstrated in various policy submissions (on NHI, PHC) and publications that priority interventions will not achieve intended outcomes of equity and improved health without a central focus on HR4RH. As Heywood calls for in his paper, the National HRH Strategy needs to be funded. In its entirety. Including NDoH HRH Plan – Chapter 8 – Rural Health. Read Heywood’s excellent piece and comment on-line on the Wiser website.
