New chief for SA's Military Health Service

Lieutenant-General Zola Dabula has been appointed as the new surgeon-general of the SA Military Health Service, reports eNCA. Dabula has three decades of experience in military health and served as a physician to former president Nelson Mandela.

The report says mental health issues, Aids and a minuscule budget are just some of the issues the new surgeon-general will inherit.

Dabula says the Military Health Service endorses the National Health Insurance. "The NHI will address the problems that exist in terms of health delivery and the inequity of thereof," Dabula is quoted in the report as saying.
