According to World Bank’s 2013 population statistics, South Africa had 52.98 million people. This number of people means that the country should have enough resources to support its population chief among them health resources. There is no doubt South Africa, just like any other country needs more health and medical institutions to cater for its ever rising population.
Worth noting is the fact that having a medical aid is very crucial in a country like South Africa where money plays a significant role when it comes to matters of health. The country has a shortage of public health institutions which cannot accommodate the country’s population thus having a medical aid is very important considering that one would opt for private hospitals and clinics.
