South African healthcare systems research and development organisation, the Health Systems Trust, has published its first ever guide to the distribution and amount of primary healthcare across the districts of South Africa. The District Health Barometer Year 1 offers pointers to and comparisons between the healthcare systems of different districts. Indicator groups used in the report are: Input (for example, per capital health expenditure); process (for example, nurse clinical workload); outcome (for example, TB cure rate); and health status impact (for example, still birth rate).
