South Africa's health inequality in the spotlight

A new report by Oxfam and the Young Nurses Indaba Trade Union, has found that unfair labour practices and the poor treatment of healthcare workers, has compromised the quality of healthcare in South Africa, and left us with a healthcare system ill-prepared for pandemics like COVID-19.

For more on the report’s findings, we spoke to Sipho Mthathi, the executive director of Oxfam South Africa and Sister Fikile Dikolomela-Lengene, deputy president of the Young Nurses Indaba Trade Union.
