Primary health care is the best-MEC



Free State Health MEC Benny Malakoane says community health services and primary health care are the best choice to ensure a healthy and fit society.

He was speaking during a health care education campaign at the Setsoto Municipality in Ficksburg where he also embarked on a door-to-door campaign on Monday. Malakoane emphasized that they want to ensure that residents live a healthy lifestyle.

“We will be going into each and every house and we will be profiling the family, asking medical questions and checking those who might be ill. Referring those to the nearest health facility and even giving minor treatment for those who might require at that time. I have a firm believe that this is the first campaign of its kind in this country and it requires of us to re-emphasize primary health type of treatment,” Malakoane said.
