HSA signs Canadian Health Coalitions -Call to Care"

The Health Sciences Association of BC  has joined more than 180 organizations in endorsing the Canadian Health Coalitions -Call to Care", to secure the future of Medicare.  The CHC statement outlines a vision and a list of principles to build a better public health care system that works for everyone.  

The federal government has recently announced that it intends to cut funding to the provinces for health care, and to abdicate its responsibility to ensure that the principles of the Canada Health Act are upheld across the country.  

HSA is committed to working with other organizations to ensure that all of us continue to have publicly funded and publicly provided health care that is universal, comprehensive, accessible, and portable.  We will work for a Health Accord that supports these principles, and prohibits the
extra billing, user fees and queue-jumping that are eroding Medicare.  

For the complete text of the Call to Care, and a list of organizations across Canada who have endorsed it, see http://healthcoalition.ca/main/resources/a-call-to-care/

If you belong to an organization that would like to endorse the Call to Care, please contact brad@healthcoalition.ca.
