The Life Healthcare Esidimeni tragedy is one of the most significant violations of health and human rights in post-apartheid South Africa.
The CHESAI collective held a session to engage more deeply with the Life Esidimeni tragedy in order to generate some health systems lessons. In addition to mapping out a timeline of events, we discussed and reviewed some of the transcripts of the 2017/8 hearings. This blog reflects our key collective thoughts.
