In 1998 a community service policy was implemented that required health professionals to complete 12 months community service / 24 months Internship through remunerative work in the public sector. The purpose of the policy was to achieve better distribution of human resources for health to under-serviced areas and thereby improve equitable access to primary health care services.
In accordance with the National Department of Health’s (NDoH) Annual Performance Plan (APP), all eligible South African graduates from South African Universities must apply to be allocated for internship and community service each year within available resources.
