COSATU National strike 

 

The streets of South Africa were swamped by disgruntled workers dressed in red and the air was filled with echoes from chanting and demonstrations of protesters. 

 

On 13 February, DENOSA and other Congress of South African Trade Union (COSATU) affiliates heeded the call made by the federation (COSATU) to nationally embark on a nationwide strike among others against job losses, unemployment and poor economy.  

 

Like other unions in their respective professions, DENOSA joined the march to express its concerns of job losses, unemployment in the health sector which will result to poor capacity to accommodate and execute the implementation of the National Health Insurance (NHI), a model that is believed that it will have the capacity to provide Universal Health Coverage which will be accessed by all citizens regardless of their socio-economic class. 

 

DENOSA further believes that the universal health coverage will be realized and felt by many South Africans through re-engineering of primary healthcare whereby more clinics are fully equipped and refurbished and nurses are skilled with study opportunities on PHC and services are available at all times.
