Addressing Concerns for Successful Implementation of National Health Insurance in South Africa: Perspectives from Policymakers and the Role of Pharmacists in Primary Healthcare Re-engineering

In this study, policymakers in South Africa were interviewed to gain insights into their perspectives on the implementation of National Health Insurance (NHI) and the role of pharmacists in primary healthcare (PHC) re-engineering.

The study identified several concerns that could compromise the efficient functionality of NHI and attaining universal healthcare (UHC). These concerns included the need for appropriate governance and regulatory mechanisms, the complexity of issues experienced at local levels of care, the involvement of private healthcare providers and the lack of reimbursement mechanisms, the need for stakeholder engagement and communication, and the underutilization of pharmacists in the healthcare system. The study highlights the importance of proactive and positive engagement with key role-players to address these concerns and ensure the successful implementation of NHI and PHC re-engineering in South Africa.
