Abstract

South Africa has a relatively large private health sector that is expected to grow to meet the needs of the more affluent. It is possible to use private funds to improve health services in rural areas. Low premium products being developed by Health Maintenance Organizations (HMOs) and other forms of managed care can help meet the health needs of those of more modest means in both rural and urban environments. Capital formation can be facilitated with the introduction of a health mutual fund.
