Health Care in Canada and Cuba: What Do They Have that We Don't?
This forum is sponsored by the Gateway Green Alliance, Universal African Peoples Organization and Missourians for Single Payer
ST. LOUIS – What are major problems with health care in the US that make it inaccessible for the poor, the working poor, and middle class families who often have insurance plans? Why is health care so expensive? Why does the US have higher infant and maternal mortality rates compared with some, poor countries?
Could a Medicare for All system such as exists in Canada really improve care and reduce costs by 20 to 40%? Why does the Cuban health care system result in a longer life expectancy and lower infant mortality rate while spending less than 10% per capita of what the US does?
Come with your questions and ideas about how we can resolve the fatal flaws in US health care.
