“This is in recognition of the leadership that you have demonstrated over many decades,” said Dr Maurice Goodman, Chief Medical Officer of Discovery Health. “Most particularly, however, we would like to recognise your leadership role during this very challenging period for health systems globally and in South Africa.” 

“Now, more than ever, do our healthcare systems require leaders of your calibre to ensure that our healthcare systems emerge with greater resilience in this post-pandemic era,” said Goodman.
