dc.description.abstractEnglish: The South African health care system, along with society in general, is undergoing profound transformation. Afcer almost five years, questions may well be posed about the nature of chis transition, the benefits of the reform for health care, and the effects of the transformation on the health and well-being of the population. The argument is chat reform of a fundamental nature has indeed taken place in numerous dimensions of the health sphere. However, crucial aspects of the health system remain unchanged. Regarding the effects of the transition on the health and well- being of the population, one may certainly assume char significant gains have been achieved as a result of the reform measures, although practice thus far also adduces some evidence co che concrary.en_ZA
dc.description.abstractAfrikaans: Die Suid-Afrikaanse samelewing, en so ook sy gesondheidsorgsisteem, ondergaan tans ingrypende transformasie. Na byna vyf jaar kan vrae met reg gevra word oor die aard van die transisie, die voordele van die hervorming vir gesondheidsorg, en die uitwerking van die transformasie op die gesondheid en welsyn van die bevolking. Die argument is dat fundamentele hervorming inderdaad in talle dimensies van die gesondheidsfeer plaasgevind het. Nogtans bly sekere kernaspekte in die samestelling van die gesondheidsisteem onveranderd. Ten opsigte van die uitwerking van die hervorming op die gesondheid en welsyn van die bevolking, sou mens kon aanvaar dat winste sekerlik as gevolg van die hervormingsmaarreels gerealiseer het, hoewel die praktyk tot dusver ook op die teendeel dui.en_ZA
