UPCOMING CONFERENCES




Family physicians have been deployed in a variety of ways, which reflects both their breadth of training and the confusion in national and provincial policy regarding their roles in the health system.

-Health Review 2018




Family Physicians were found to have a substantial impact in all of their six roles. This impact was significantly greater than medical officers in all six roles. Their impact was similar in primary care and district hospital as well as in rural and metropolitan settings.

-Policy Brief




Health cannot be a question of income; it is a fundamental human right.

– Nelson Mandela
