South African Health Review (SAHR)
The content of the 19th edition of the South African Health Review (2016) is divided into four sections. The first of these is Leadership and Governance. Chapter 1 describes the current legislative and policy framework guiding healthcare delivery, and Chapter 2 analyses the challenges that underpin the relatively poor performance of our health system, despite the financial resources directed towards it. Chapters 3 and 4 focus on water and food respectively. The first highlights the need for improved water and health management with greater surveillance of water quality, and the second examines the impact of a diet of highly processed and animal-origin foods with added sugar, salt and fat on the rise of non-communicable diseases in South Africa.
