The African Christian Democratic Party Member of Parliament and the party’s Spokesperson on health matters, Cheryllyn Dudley, on Wednesday addressed a round-table discussion on Morbidity & Mortality of Children.

The discussion, hosted by the Southern African Catholic Bishops’ Conference Parliamentary Liaison Office, examined various challenges facing South Africa and the global community.

Dudley said that professionals working in Health care with children are adamant that children are not sufficiently prioritised in the healthcare system and facilities.

She added that although Africa is home to 10% of the global population, it contributes to almost half of all child deaths worldwide.
