New research reveals majority support for healthcare sector nationalisation

# The Social Research Foundation’s recent survey of one-thousand-412 registered voters revealed that 61-percent believe the government should nationalise the healthcare sector. The survey reveals a nuanced perspective across political lines, with 71-percent of ANC supporters, 33-percent of DA voters, and 57-percent of EFF voters favouring healthcare nationalisation. News24 reports the survey also highlights racial and educational divides, with 63-percent of blacks supporting nationalisation compared to 79-percent of whites opposing it. The findings highlight diverse perspectives on healthcare policy amid discussions on the introduced National Health Insurance Bill in August last year.
