Canadian Health Coalition puts together federal election primer

The Canadian Health Coalition has put together a primer for the Federal election. The CHC raises several issues you can ask Federal candidates about, including where they stand on:

  • Enforcement of the Canada Health Act so Canadians don’t face user fees, illegal bills and queue-jumping.Establishment of  national standards for an integrated, seamless system of care that includes long-term care, home care and palliative care.
  • Creation of a universal public drug plan – Pharmacare –so all Canadians have access to safe, appropriate and affordable medicines.
  • Commitment to the renewal of the Health Accord in 2014 with adequate federal funding, national standards and accountability for how the money is spent.
  • Ensuring national standards and accountability through federal leadership.
