Corporate Communications

As a knowledge based organisation, the effective dissemination of information to industry stakeholders is critical. This is done through the media, seminars and workshops, newsletters and other communication modalities to four key industry stakeholder groupings, namely; medical schemes and administrators; medical scheme members and consumers; regulatory authorities and relevant government departments; business and labour organisations.

BHF Annual Southern African Conference

The annual conference showcases the sector, drawing people not only from the medical scheme sector, but many other related organisations including government departments, actuaries, switching houses, insurance brokers and various provider associations. The conference is seen as a unique opportunity to network and hear of latest trends and developments both locally and internationally. The focus is generally on issues of a more strategic nature.

The 15th Annual BHF Southern African Conference was held at the Durban International Conference Centre, from the 24th to 27th of August. The theme for this year’s conference was “Waves of Change. Oceans of Opportunity"

Opened by former president, Nelson Mandela in 1997, the Durban ICC was South Africa’s first International Convention Centre and has played a pioneering role in attracting international events to our shores since its inception.
