Health CareBook - 2008
As access to sufficient health care continues to become a dominant--and divisive--issue in the world today, this resource acts as a primer to the public health care system Canada has had in place for the last 30 years. While explaining the program's cost efficiency and dramatically better health outcomes compared with the United States' private health care system, it also addresses the complexities of the program, as well as the aspects that need improvement--such as wait times and the aging boomer generation. This analysis offers a detailed introduction on how the Canadian system works and assesses reforms currently underway, concluding that expanding Canada's public health care system, rather than privatizing it, is the best way to improve it.
