Public, private health systems and the quality of care

[Johannesburg, 29 August 2014] - The Wits Institute for Economic and Social Research (WiSER), the Wits Department of Political Studies; and the History Workshop at Wits invite you to a discussion: Public and private health systems and the quality of care.
