Human Rights - TAC to march to Khayelitsha District Hospital

On Sakhisizwe today, we spoke to Ncebakazi Qupe – From the Treatment Action Campaign. On Thursday TAC members will be marching to Khayelitsha District Hospital in order to demonstrate its dissatisfaction with the hospital’s service delivery. The organisation claims that in August of 2013, the Treatment Action Campaign handed over a memorandum to Khayelitsha hospital about the poor experiences of community members at the hospital. After the MEC inspected the hospital, he found no problems. However, problems have continued to arise, and the people of Khayelitsha are unhappy with the response of the hospital and the MEC. The march will take place on Thursday, the 27th of March 2014, at 10h00AM until 13h00PM.Ncebakazi said the goal of this demonstration is to demand an improvement in the quality of treatment and care for the people of Khayelitsha. TAC would greatly appreciate the community's support in attending this event. For more information contact Ncebakazi on 071 953 3202 or Mthuthuzeli Dutyulwa on 071 118 0937 alternatively Lumkile Sizila on 073 722 4903.
