TAC Demands Accountability From Politicians #Vote4Health


BLOEMFONTEIN, 20th MARCH 2014: The Treatment Action Campaign (TAC) and partner organisations marched on the office of Free State Premier Ace Mashagule to demand he takes concrete steps to bring an end to the severe problems in the Free State health system. The march formed part of TAC's campaign to hold politicians to account through our People's Health Manifesto. The People's Health Manifesto contains 11 questions that we are putting to all political parties ahead of the May 7th general elections.

The People's Health Manifesto is a manifesto from the ground. The TAC consulted widely with communities across the country to ensure that the manifesto reflects the real needs of people who depend on the public healthcare system. While the issues identified in the People's Health Manifesto reflect conditions in many provinces, we have chosen to focus on the Free State due to the particularly dire state of this province's health system.
