Introductory remarks

Dumelang Bagaetsho!
• I have called for this interaction session with you because I believe it is important that we continuously engage on issues of mutual interest.
• I am already from another districts and these contact sessions are important to continuously assess governance structures performance in all the four districts.

Partnership with the University

• Our partnership with the North West University is primarily on assisting us to make you perform your duties very well, to train you on important tools and philosophies that can lead to improved health service delivery.
• So we are also here to track on progress made since the last training. We also want to assist you to put what you have learnt into practice.
• Your oversight role remains critical all the time and that role should include monitoring health service delivery in our facilities. The training should assist you to be able to identified health service delivery bottlenecks and recommend remedies for such.
• I know for example that there is a tool developed specifically to tackle the issue of Mother to Child Transmission of HIV. This tool will help us to monitor MCHW services at facilities.
• You are also expected to monitor health services in general including the issues of cleanliness, drugs availability, attitude of our health professionals and other important issues.
• We also need to identify challenges in our districts and sub-districts

National Health Act

• It is also important that we do everything within your scope as prescribed in the National Health Act

The act emphasizes the three main principles which are:
• Our partnership with the people of south Africa
• Our people to take responsibility of their health
• Benefit the previously isolated and disadvantaged people.
• Protect those who cannot protect themselves.

Reflections on Departmental Lekgotla

• We are just from the Departmental Lekgotla were we looked at strategic issues that can help us improve health service delivery
• We realigned the Annual Performance Plan to the Strategic vision and mission of the Department but we also made a few critical decision to help us channel resources to the districts and local facilities where they are most needed.
• It is thus important as we begin the process of Re-engineering PHC and implementing National Health Insurance (NHI) that we are on board with all critical PHC demands and advice accordingly

Monitoring and Evaluation

• I feel that we need to improve on monitoring and evaluation
• For this reason, it is essential that our senior managers are also trained in monitoring and evaluation
• We need monitoring and evaluation strengthened because we can know if we do well and where and what we need to fix if this area is addressed.
