Facilitating Civic Engagement through Consultation: Learning from local communities through the NHI-Accountability Project in South Africa
This publication is closely based on a technicalÂ report examining public consultation in theÂ National Health Insurance (NHI) discourse. TheÂ report, Governance and Accountability in theÂ Health Sector: A People’s Policy for HealthÂ in South Africa was prepared in 2015 for theÂ Oxfam-Monash partnership, following theÂ conclusion of its project.
It is hoped that this content builds on this work and offers insight toÂ programmers and policy-makers about practicesÂ and principles that stimulate responsiveness inÂ citizens and communities, especially amongstÂ those who are traditionally marginalised owingÂ to socioeconomic and political status.
This publication is the first in a series exploring the principles and practice of approach for successfully and responsibly facilitating active civic engagement, this time through the example of participation in health policy formation.
