Minister of Health and Social Services, Dr. Kalumbi Shangula, says that 90 percent of Namibians depend on public health facilities for their medical needs, doing so through government’s 30 district hospitals, 43 health centres, 279 clinics, and other outreach programmes countrywide. Leader of the official opposition, McHenry Venaani, has meanwhile taken issue with the state of public healthcare, saying in the absence of universal healthcare, Namibia’s public health sector is divided into two: one for the poor and another for the elite.
