The Society of Neurosurgeons of South Africa (SNSA) is a public company 100% owned and managed by Neurosurgeons for the benefit of Neurosurgery. SNSA was established in 1996 and has been functional to the benefit of Neurosurgeons for a number of years.
The SNSA needs to be strengthened by increased membership support to deal with the ever increasing demand placed on SNSA by government regarding the role of private practice in South Africa, the role of private practice in the proposed National Health Insurance (NHI) System, the shortage of doctors, the salaries of specialists in the public sector, the income of specialists in the private sector, the role of medical schemes, and other important matters such as regulatory reforms.
