Western Cape Government withdraws funding
25 May 2012
The Western Cape Government Health has today announced that it is withdrawing its funding to all District Health Councils in the province.
The District Health Council Act makes provision for the establishment of legislated governance structures in each district in the province.
Health Communication Officer Angelique Jordaan says the Western Cape government deemed the funding of these structures inappropriate.
The Department will now start with formalising the PHC Health Facility Committees in terms of appropriate provincial legislation.
