Document: People’s Health Manifesto

Written by Health-e News

Ahead of South Africa’s election, the Treatment Action Campaign (TAC) has released its “People’s Health Manifesto.”

Developed through consultations with TAC members, the 11-point manifesto questions political parties’ stances on intellectual property and access to medicine, cervical cancer and addressing medicine stock-outs.

According to TAC, the document is a way to  sensitise political parties to key issues in the health system and seek clarity on how parties intend to respond to these issues.
