Comparative Healthcare Systems: Workshop Series by Michael Teasdale

Minimize

Healthcare is the key element in the quality of life and a foundational right in civilized societies.  Providing appropriate healthcare to all allows individuals to lead dignified and full lives. In the USA there has been a long debate about the cost, quality and access to healthcare. UUs, believing in the inherent value of every human being, need to be in the forefront of the struggle to ensure healthcare is available to all. In my presentations you will find how well the healthcare system in the United States compares with other developed economies.  Often hailed as the "best healthcare system in the world," the presentations show not only that the USA system is more expensive but has serious issues in access to care as well as quality of care and service compared to other countries.  Comparative data from the World Healthcare Organization (WHO) and Organization of Economic Coordination and Development (OECD) show the USA can learn much from other countries to achieve affordable healthcare for all.  [Michael Teasdale UUJEC Co-Chair]

Health Care and Coverage for All

As prepared by the Healthcare Justice Committee of UUJEC

One of UUJEC’s top action priorities is to mobilize resources, strategic plans, collaboration and action to provide basic healthcare to all US citizens and residents.  This undergirds the larger goal of reducing wealth inequality.

Because of the current resistance among legislators to universal single payer health care, our strategies must be short term and long term; prevention of the erosion of current coverage under The Affordable Care Act, Medicare, Medicaid, Veterans Benefits, Social Security including Disability coverage, community hospitals and state programs; as well as promoting movement toward state and/or national single payer health provision such as expansion and enhancement of Medicare to cover all.  Read more here.
