    16th Annual BHF Southern African Conference

Issued on: 03 May 2016


Continuing our commitment to build expertise and vision in the industry, we are proud and excited to host our 17th Annual Conference. Once again, this prestigious event will be held at the Cape Town International Convention Centre from the 17-20 July 2016.

Conference theme:

The theme for this year’s conference is “A Roadmap to Universal Healthcare“. This theme is in line and a continuation of our journey with the Roadmap towards sustainable healthcare document produced at last year’s conference.

Universal Healthcare (UHC) is an international commitment and part of the Sustainable Development Goals 2030.

South Africa’s NHI is a national roadmap to UHC, representing a financing system to pool funds to ensure quality, affordable healthcare for all.

Central to this theme will be the impact and opportunities of  Universal Healthcare in growing the economy and social stability. This is consistent with the NDP 2030 vision.

The programme will also focus on how the various sectors in healthcare are gearing themselves to play a meaningful  and important role in making NHI work.
