The National Primary Health Care Facilities Survey 2000
The National Primary Health Care Survey 2000 constitutes a follow-up of the 1997 and 1998 surveys as part of an ongoing monitoring exercise of the status of PHC provided in fixed clinics. The 2000 survey also establishes a baseline of data on the status of PHC provided by satellite and mobile clinics. It also mirrors the status of PHC provision in the country, and highlights major differences between provinces and in urban and rural settings.
The survey focuses on the following aspects of PHC: range of services, human resources, equipment, infrastructure, drugs and supplies, supervision, record keeping and support. A random sample of 445 clinics (10% per province) was drawn, stratified proportionally according to the actual number of fixed, satellite and mobile clinics.
Despite vast variations amongst the provinces, the 2000 survey generally indicates notable progress towards equity in service provision in as much as:
On the negative side inequity in PHC provision continues, with notable variation from province to province:
Thus it would seem that despite the sustained emphasis on the strengthening of PHC in South Africa and worthy progress evidenced by this survey, a more concerted effort is required to accelerate the move towards equity. In comparing the availability of resources and services across the provinces this report should prove useful to the provinces in assessing their progress towards equity relative to that of other provinces.
