The South African Constitution states that every one South African has the right to have access to sufficient food and water. However, this is not the reality South Africa faces. Due to the lack of sufficient nutritious food, there has been a rise of non-communicable diseases and since has been described as a public health emergency in slow motion, and is also now the leading cause of death. It is estimated that 51 percent of South Africa’s annual deaths are related to non-communicable diseases. The University of the Western Cape (UWC’s) Dullar Omar Institute yesterday held a webinar that focused on Human Rights and Non-Communicable Diseases. It explored the link between access to safe and nutritious food, to contracting non-communicable diseases.

Guest: Moderator at the Dullah Omar Institute’s Paula Knipe.
