Universality is not a value unique to Canada. While the amount of public/private financing and delivery varies between countries, all countries try to ensure that people receive health care when they need it, regardless of their ability to pay. In terms of access, quality, cost and other aspects of health system performance, there is much that Canada can learn from countries such as the United Kingdom, Singapore, Sweden and even the United States. Conference by Cynthia Ramsay, Health Economist and Consultant.
