ANC Election Manifesto | A Better Life for All
We will TAKE IMMEDIATE STEPS TO IMPROVE hospitals and clinics, and work to achieve UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE by 2025.

Fill critical vacant posts in hospitals and clinics.

Achieve free, quality health care for all at the point of service by 2025 with a National Health Insurance.

Train more doctors and nurses and improve management and leadership of the entire public health sector.

Delegate responsibility to district and frontline health service managers in hospitals and clinics to avoid long queues of patients waiting for treatment.

Absorb 50,000+ community health care workers in the public service. In 5 years, the number of community health workers will be doubled and deployed in our villages, townships and informal settlements.

Screen 2 million people for TB and get 90% of HIV+ people on treatment by 2020.
