ADVOCATING FOR EQUITABLE COVID-19 VACCINE ACCESS: AN ETHICAL IMPERATIVE

In the last 12-months, the world and our very way of life has been fundamentally altered by the global pandemic, and we have had to learn to manage the catastrophic health, psychosocial, social and economic effects that have emerged as the primary consequential outcomes of COVID-19. Recently, our attention has been re-directed to the hopes associated with the development of  efficacious vaccines to combat the virus. Management of the pandemic has profoundly shifted to issues related to vaccine development, trials and efficacy, approval, production, distribution and scalable population rollout.

HPCSA Annual Fees Announcement Delayed

You will have noted that the promulgation of fees payable to Council for the 2021/2022 financial year have been delayed. The reason for the delay is due to Council having approved the budget in December 2020 before the surge of the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Council convened an urgent special meeting on Friday, 12 March 2021 to reconsider the budget approved in December 2020 in consideration of the effect of the pandemic on the practitioners. At this meeting, Council resolved not to increase the annual fees of the eleven (11) Professional Boards from the previous financial year except for the Medical and Dental Professions Board.

The process for the promulgation of the fees payable to Council is currently underway and will be published in the Government Gazette on Friday, 19 March 2021. The process of invoicing practitioners will resume, and this process will be concluded before 31 March 2021. Once the invoices have been raised, practitioners will be able to make payments using the online portal and have access to their certificates immediately.

We apologise for the delay in the promulgation of the fees payable to Council for the 2021/2022 financial year. Practitioners are advised that the annual fees payable to Council will be due on 31 May 2021.

HPCSA Departmental Relocation
The Complaints Handling and Investigation Unit, Corporate Affairs Division and Inspectorate Office will be moving from the Nedbank Plaza Building to the HPCSA Metroden/Main Building effective 30 March 2021. Please note that our offices remain closed to the public in-line with COVID guidelines and practitioners can engage the HPCSA online.

Stay safe!
