South Africa moves to embrace healthcare challenges with ministerial reshuffle

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Barbara Hogan has replaced Dr Manto Tshabalala-Msimang as South Africa's minister of health. Dr Molefi Sefularo was also appointed as her deputy, effective September 26. The HIV/AIDS lobby group Treatment Action Campaign (TAC) welcomed the appointment of Ms Hogan as "excellent", stressing her "ability to improve the South African health system". The TAC noted, however, that the meeting the treatment and prevention targets of the HIV/AIDS National Strategic Plan, which integrates TB and HIV care, will be among the new ministerial team's leading challenges.
