dc.description.abstract Examines the role of the Medical Association of South Africa (MASA) in response to human rights violations during the apartheid era. MASA was an existing organisation that saw the introduction and implementation of apartheid in South Africa. During this time a number of gross human rights violations involving the medical profession and apartheid, including the death of Mr Steve Biko at the hands of the security police, when two doctors deliberately falsified evidence. During this period of time, MASA was supposedly representing the medical profession and acting on behalf of doctors. Yet it appears as if very little was done by MASA to address these and other issues. The study examines a number of questions that emerge from this research. en
