The Healthcare Sector in South Africa

Healthcare expenditure in South Africa, which is over R500bn a year, is roughly evenly split between the public and private healthcare sectors, despite the former providing care for 85% of South Africans. The healthcare sector was put to the test through the COVID-19 pandemic. Public healthcare, already under strain from lack of resources and sub-quality care, struggled to cope with service provision during the pandemic and the distraction it caused from attending to urgent communicable and non-communicable disease epidemics.

Funding

Healthcare funding concerns are increasing and public healthcare budget cuts are expected due to pressure on government finances, while private healthcare costs continue to rise above inflation, causing a reduction in the already small pool of medically-insured people. Government expects National Health Insurance to fund over 90% of all healthcare in the public and private sectors. The private sector has raised concerns about its affordability, the state’s ability to implement it and the impact it will have on the private healthcare sector.

Private Sector Recovery

The pandemic significantly reduced the revenue of private sector hospitals, which also had to incur additional pandemic-related costs. However, they recorded a strong recovery in 2021 and 2022, refinanced or reduced debt and improved cash flow, and improved revenue as trading conditions normalised.
