Yet more!

Health is not a tradable commodity. It is a matter of rights and a public sector duty. As such, resources for health must be equitable and universal. There are three linked issues. First, experience shows that commercialization of vital social goods such as education and health care produces health inequity. Provision of such vital social goods must be governed by the public sector, rather than being left to markets.

Yup, we\’ve got to abolish the private school system globally in order to ensure health equity.

  2. I don’t know who came up with this idiotic “Health care is not a commodity” mantra. Health care is not a commodity, true, it is a service. harking back to the good ol’ days when there were two Germanies, you have to ask yourself, when a doctor is hunched over you with your beating heart in his hand, if that doctor should be a Mercedes or a Trabant.
