Preventive Care & COVID

07/09/2020

COVID-19 has exposed the inadequacy of healthcare systems around the world and brought public attention to government and private institutions alike. The lack of preparedness points to inefficiencies, lack of resources, and the impact of for profit healthcare. COVID offers an opportunity to reshape healthcare in ways that were impossible just a few months ago. The pandemic may be the impetus for change, for a reassessment of what healthcare is and what it can be.
