Abstract

Die Universiteit van Pretoria se Gesondheidsdienste voorsien gratis, vrywillige gesins-medisyne-georiënteerde gesondheidsdienste met die klem op voorkomende medisyne en gesondheidsopvoeding aan ingeskrewe studente. Studente word ondersoek en / of ingelig deur gekwalifiseerde personeel wat die Universiteit se omgewing en vereistes ken. Buiten die genoemde gesondheidsdienste lewer die Studente Gesondheidsdienste ook onderrig rakende voorbehoeding en seksueel-oordraagbare siektes, verskaf MIV / VIGS-berading en voorsien 'n omvattende dieetkundige diens. Gedurende die periode 2000 tot 2005 het die persentasie studente wat die Studente Gesondheidsdienste besoek het, van die totale getal ingeskrewe studente, naastenby konstant gebly op 12.5%. 'n Groot persentasie van studente wat van die dienste gebruik maak behoort aan 'n mediese fonds en dit is bereken dat die Universiteit van Pretoria gedurende die laaste ses jaar ongeveer R2.4 miljoen gesubsidieer het tot mediese onkostes van studente wat aan 'n mediese fonds behoort.

The University of Pretoria's Student Health Services provides free, voluntary, family-medicine-orientated health services with an emphasis on offering preventative medicine and health education to enrolled students. Students are examined and / or educated by skilled personnel familiar with the University's environment and demands. Apart from the family medicine services, the Student Health Services also educates students concerning contraception and sexually-transmitted diseases, carries out HIV / AIDS counselling and provides a comprehensive dietetic service. During the period 2000 to 2005 the percentage of students visiting the Student Health Services, of the total number of students enrolled at the University, remained almost constant at 12.5%. A large percentage of the students making use of these services do belong to a medical aid and it is estimated that during the past six years the University of Pretoria has subsidised an amount of about R2.4 million towards the medical costs of students belonging to a medical aid.
