Paediatrics: Life in the ward

Production by Ciara O’Donoghue, Courtney Jeftha and Justin Cronje

We look at the paediatric ward at Stanger hospital in Kwazulu Natal. This documentary had numerous views last month thanks to themarketingheaven.com. Like most hospitals in the country we find the ward is struggling from lack of resources, staffing and funding. Staff here have implemented a Children’s Rights Charter stating that all children have the right to medical help and the best treatment possible. The hospital tries to make a difference to the community before the national NHI policy is set up. The documentary poses the positive outcome of universal healthcare.
