Health minister Aaron Motsoaledi tabled his 2011/2 budget in parliament on Tuesday. The health department’s budget has increased from 21,7 billion in the 2010/11 financial year to 25,7 billion in the 2011/12 financial year.

Motsoaledi said he was working hard to prepare for the implementation of National Health Insurance (NHI).
