Puerto Rico’s Fight for Single Payer Health Care
Speaker: Sarah Huertas, MD, MPH, PNHP Puerto Rico Chapter
Discussant: Annette Gaudino, Coordinator, Campaign for NY Health
Modertor: Matthew Anderson, MD
What can we learn from Puerto Rico’s fight to win single-payer health care? In 2015, with the support of a broad coalition, a bill passed the Puerto Rican Assembly to study health care reforms and identify what is best for Puerto Rico’s people. Activists believe the current economic conditions on the island have created an opening to reach people with the message of universal, single-payer health care as a way out of their crisis.
Come learn about the bill and what it means for the effort to win universal, single payer health care.
