Maternal and Child Health Court Papers


In April 2023, SECTION27 welcomed the Court order confirming that all pregnant and lactating women and children under 6 must be providd with free healthcare services at public hospitals. Along with our partner organisations, SECTION27 has campaigned for the right to access healthcare services for all persons in South Africa as guaranteed in the Constitution, through litigation and advocacy. 

See below, our court papers and advocacy material for the Maternal and Child Healthcare campaign.
