The 2010 edition of the SAHR focuses on two main issues: Reflections on the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and the Perspectives on a National Health Insurance (NHI) for South Africa. As is customary, the Review ends with the Indicators section which provides a range of indicators relevant to the MDGs and NHI. In the section on the MDGs, a series of overview chapters on selected MDGs are presented. These overview chapters are accompanied by companion chapters or profiles which illustrate examples of successful methods or case studies in achieving the MDGs. The profiles also highlight problems and issues in relation to either achieving the MDG or measuring the related indicators.
