This documentary looks at the National Health Insurance (NHI), focusing on the re-engineering of primary healthcare to meet the health needs of the country. For the first time South Africa’s health care will start from the ground up, with community health workers taking invaluable care and education into peoples homes, even in the poorest of communities. South Africa’s 12 million learners will learn how to stay healthy through a vibrant school health programme. Clinics will provide the core of basic health care and essential screening, so going to hospitals will only be the very last resort. This exciting change to Primary Health Care will revolutionize the way we care for ourselves and how we are cared for by our health system.
Teachers and nurses work closely together in this national programme to ensure that children get basic healthcare in schools.
