This publication is closely based on a technical report examining public consultation in the National Health Insurance (NHI) discourse. The report, Governance and Accountability in the Health Sector: A People’s Policy for Health in South Africa was prepared in 2015 for the Oxfam-Monash partnership, following the conclusion of its project.

It is hoped that this content builds on this work and offers insight to programmers and policy-makers about practices and principles that stimulate responsiveness in citizens and communities, especially amongst those who are traditionally marginalised owing 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.
