Privatization is not an answer to health care access problems; increased public funding is

Abstract

The most important characteristics of a health care system are its QUALITY, ACCESS, and COST.  The Canadian health care system is of high quality; however, access to it is definitely problematic, and, arguably, its cost is high. The obvious solution to access problems is increased public funding by 15-20 per cent above the current level.
