Volume 2002 Number 1
  • ISSN : 1025-1715



This chapter reviews the legislation drafted by the national Department of Health during 2002. While progress has been achieved since 1994 / 5, the National Health Bill has yet to be passed despite its long gestation. Major themes in legislation drafting that are pursued in this chapter are division of powers and functions amongst the three spheres of government and issues related to implementation of legislation especially in relation to selected constitutional issues such as the right to health care services.
