Ramaphosa signs long-delayed health blueprint

After a long delay, President Ramaphosa has finally signed the blue print for fixing the country's healthcare system via a Health Compact. The World Health Organisation has had a hand in developing the compact and is confident that its goals will be reached.

Business Day TV sat down with Alex for more of his views.
