MEC for Health in KwaZulu-Natal

Kwazulu-Natal Health MEC continues witch-hunt of doctors and breaks National Health Act

 Unaccoutable Politician

  • Nkonyeni continues witch-hunt against Mark Blaylock and Colin Pfaff
  • National Health Act has been breached because Nkonyeni, her officials and the Kwazulu-Natal Treasury have:
    • Publicised private details of Dr Mark Blaylock's medical history.
    • Handed over original confidential patient records to a private company.
  • Nkonyeni fails to honour agreement with civil society to resolve conflict.

Kwazulu-Natal Province (KZN) is the epicentre of the South African HIV epidemic. Nearly 40% of pregnant women attending public health facilities in the province are HIV-positive. 16.5% of people over the age of two are infected (South African National HIV Survey, 2005). More than any other province it needs good political leadership on AIDS. But instead the province's MEC for Health, Peggy Nkonyeni, entertains AIDS denialism and is destroying health-care in the province.
