SA spreads health care expertise beyond its borders

Friday, April 8, 2011

Pretoria - South Africa's Limpopo province is leading the way in sharing its health care service expertise with fellow Southern African Development Community (SADC) country, Swaziland.

Limpopo Health and Social Development MEC, Dikeledi Magadzi, is set to host a delegation from Swaziland in an effort to enhance health care service delivery and share experiences with other African countries.

The high profile delegation from Swaziland will be led by MP Nonhlanhla Dlamini, where they will go to the Polokwane Hospital's Renal Unit Facility to observe best practices.

The renal unit, which was also visited by the Mpumalanga provincial government last month, is hailed as the one of the best facilities and a model public-private partnership with Clinix Renal Care.

"This learning tour by the Government of Swaziland to the Polokwane Hospital Complex's Renal Unit is a clear indication that as Africans, we are capable of improving our lot and are able to share best practices and experiences to enhance health care service delivery," Magadzi said. - BuaNews
