February 7 – Right to health

Standard

Is access to medicalcare something that governments should provide, or is it better left to the private sector? Are there drawbacks to your choice?

Recently, there was a discussion about that here in Portugal. About a 90%-success-rate Hep C medication. The government didn’t want to pay some of the money for the medication, and recently, the first person on the wait list for that medication died, after waiting for what I believe was one year.

So, If you ask me, yes, medical care should be free and provided entirely by the government.
