Demarcation Regulations for the healthcare insurance sector are an attack on the black middle class

Demarcation Regulations for the healthcare insurance sector are an attack on the black middle class

The rise of the black middle class is a South African success story. Why is government clamping down on their freedom of choice? With thousands of middle-income black families now enjoying access to education, private health care, good housing and an assortment of consumer goods unknown to previous generations, why is government intent on destroying […]

Improve your Emotional Intelligence!

Improve your Emotional Intelligence!

There are some interesting movies depicting robot-like creatures that go about their daily lives without any comprehension or thought of why they are behaving the way that they are. They automatically react to the stimulus around them and are not programmed to make their own, and perhaps better, choices. In much the same way, how […]

Core aspects of anti-tobacco proposals fall short of constitutional criteria

Core aspects of anti-tobacco proposals fall short of constitutional criteria

What, if anything, does our constitution tell us about anti-smoking laws and policies?  According to the Constitution’s founding provisions (section 1) South Africa is founded inter alia on the values of “dignity … equality and human rights and freedoms” and “the rule of law”.  The Bill of Rights “enshrines … democratic values, human dignity, equality and freedom”. […]

The Department of Health’s proposals are an effective ban on smoking

The Department of Health’s proposals are an effective ban on smoking

Government’s interference a threat to rights of individuals, private property owners and bad for business “The Department of Health’s proposed measures to tighten smoking regulations under the Tobacco Products Control Act are excessive and infringe disproportionately on the fundamental rights of individuals and private property owners. They are unconstitutional and have damaging economic implications,” said […]

Steamrolling unaffordable policies – the new norm in South Africa

Steamrolling unaffordable policies – the new norm in South Africa

The current trend of pushing through populist government policies without consideration of expert reports on the affordability of funding initiatives, causes grave concern The Davis Tax Commission (DTC) report on NHI funding was made public last week. The lack of certainty within the draft NHI White Paper caused considerable difficulty for the DTC to make […]

Meal prepping: The solution you’ve been looking for?

Meal prepping: The solution you’ve been looking for?

Many of us find the time to go to the gym, but have a hard time sticking to another commitment which is just as vital for health and wellness as exercise; yup, sticking to a healthy diet. “On paper, five to seven compact tasty, nutritious meals a day to keep your metabolism revved up and […]

Department of Health plays Mary Poppins

Department of Health plays Mary Poppins

Aaron Motsoaledi: “…why do kids need nannies? Because there are certain things which they can’t do for themselves; they need somebody to take care of them. We are playing that role…” “The Department of Health is on the warpath against freedom and property rights. It has a plethora of extreme nanny-state proposals that reflect a […]

Healthcare Demarcation Regulations remove low cost benefit options for poor

Healthcare Demarcation Regulations remove low cost benefit options for poor

Prior to the enactment of the Medical Schemes Act in 1998, South Africa had a relatively free market in medical aids. There was competition between providers and consequently more options at various prices available to consumers. The Act curtailed consumer choice and put brakes on the massive leaps and bounds with which transformation was advancing […]

Practical ways to enhance emotional intelligence in children

Practical ways to enhance emotional intelligence in children

Emotional Intelligence is like freshly-squeezed orange juice!  When you squeeze an orange, you expect orange juice to flow out of it.  You wouldn’t expect to find grape or peach juice inside an orange because an orange only has orange juice to give. Human behavioural choices are based on what we have inside to give – […]

Fine tune your body for summer

Fine tune your body for summer

Let’s assume you’ve been good this year. Despite not wearing revealing clothing in the harsher winter months, you’ve stuck to a relatively healthy diet and eating patterns, gone to a few pilates classes and not skipped too many leg days. Congratulations on your stellar efforts for preparing your very best beach bod! Thing is, you […]

Alternative reimbursement and Value Based Care in layman’s terms

Alternative reimbursement and Value Based Care in layman’s terms

The World Health Organisation put the worldwide average for the provision of healthcare at 9.95% of the gross domestic product (GDP) as of 2014. In South Africa, this expenditure accounted for 8.5%. Healthcare services in the country are fractured, split between public and private with the latter still only providing care for a tiny percentage […]

NHI – the danger of political promises

NHI – the danger of political promises

South African citizens are holding government accountable for promises made to ensure votes in election years. This is evidenced by the surge in student protests on campuses all around the country and renewed demands for government to deliver on its promise of “free education”.  Initial data from the Heher Report on student funding indicates that […]

SAA: Change the incentives

SAA: Change the incentives

The mess that is South African Airlines is widely known today. What many do not realise is that Yale University, in 1944, published a little book, which lays out the reasons for the mess. While it is true that the Ludwig Mises book Bureaucracy does not mention SAA by name, it does dissect the differences between “profit […]

Does government want healthier, wealthier citizens?

Does government want healthier, wealthier citizens?

How serious is government about wanting South Africans to become healthier and wealthier and for everyone to have access to a high-quality healthcare system? If this is what it really wants, it would adopt policies that lead to greater levels of economic freedom. The recently released 2017 Economic Freedom of the World (EFW) report published by the […]

Taking the NHI debate to new levels

Taking the NHI debate to new levels

The concept of Universal Health Coverage (UHC) is a noble initiative and receives widespread support in South Africa. The World Health Organization (WHO) defines UHC as “Ensuring that all people have access to needed promotive, preventive, curative and rehabilitative health services, of sufficient quality to be effective, while also ensuring that people do not suffer […]

Oticon Opn Opens a New World of Hearing to Former Beauty Queen

Hearing the sounds of daily life and listening to music are things that most of us take for granted. The reality is that two in every thousand babies are born with a hearing lossi and many people lose their hearing as they get older. Oticon has responded to this need and provides support to people […]

Hearing Aids Help Keep Your Brain Fit

Hearing Aids Help Keep Your Brain Fit

Keeping your brain fit so that you can stay sharp, engage socially and participate in professional or volunteer activities is a concept that appeals to a wide range of age groups, from young adults to baby boomers and beyond.  While many strategies for “healthy aging” exist, the newest evidence points to the important role of […]

Government’s programmes will violate right to access healthcare

Government’s programmes will violate right to access healthcare

Government’s National Health Insurance (NHI) scheme and Demarcation Regulations are unequivocal violations of South Africans’ constitutional rights to freedom of association and access to healthcare. Rather than engaging in such repressive behaviour, government should be funding private medical care for the poor. Freedom of association and disassociation is a right guaranteed by section 18 of […]

Healthcare Demarcation Regulations remove low cost benefit options for poor

Healthcare Demarcation Regulations remove low cost benefit options for poor

Government’s healthcare demarcation regulations came into effect on 1 April 2017. They “demarcate”, or draw a line, between medical aid schemes and healthcare insurance products.  Those lower-to-middle income earners, who use lower cost insurance products like hospital cash-back plans and gap cover (i.e. most of us), will suddenly find they have only two choices: join […]

Why your health and fitness resolution never works out (and how to make it happen)

Why your health and fitness resolution never works out (and how to make it happen)

Not everyone looks forward to the looming summer months, but one thing is for sure: many of us wish we’d stuck to our pledge of diligently visiting the gym and following a healthy diet so as to look better in our sunny outfits. “The answer is obvious,” says Ivana Buchanan, group training specialist at Zone […]

Health policy shambles

Health policy shambles

There has lately been an air of urgency from government around touting the virtues of their much vaunted National Health Insurance (NHI). Health Minister Dr Aaron Motsoaledi hurriedly published a revised NHI white paper in June this year, whilst continuing his public assault on the unsuitability of the private health sector for South Africa. It […]

Stressed out? Your diet could help

Stressed out? Your diet could help

We are speeding towards the end of the year at a nerve-wracking pace, but between now and the summer holidays lies a pile of deadlines and an ever-expanding to-do list. Most of us bite off more than we can chew these days and stress management is a crucial part of a healthy life. We know […]
