The Struggle for Universal Health Care

This is why I devote my time to working for a health system in the United States that meets the human rights principles of universality, equity, and accountability: a single-payer national health insurance. Anything less will prolong suffering and unnecessary death. Every person in this country must have access to the same high-quality standard of health care.

Healing Is Not a Business

Of the advanced nations, the United States has the highest number of preventable deaths. Why is this? It’s because we are the only advanced nation that thinks of patients as consumers and health as a commodity to be bought on the market. It’s because we have tried to fit medicine into a business model.
