The international programs blog has been hosting an ongoing healthcare series. With the discussion everywhere about the US system and the recently-implemented health insurance marketplace, it seems a good time to consider some different strategies that other countries have used to keep their people healthy.
The blog has the following posts so far in the series and welcomes your contributions!
- A story about a trip to a German emergency room
- Healthcare in Costa Rica
- Healthcare in the Czech Republic
- Healthcare in Germany
- One student’s experience in Budapest
- One student’s experience in Oaxaca, Mexico
- Snapshot of US healthcare in comparison to other countries
- Review of Frontline’s “Sick Around the World” series
I would like to invite you to discuss your ideas, perspectives, or research on international healthcare in 300 to 600 word blog posts.
Possible posts could include a snapshot of an experience with healthcare abroad, descriptions of differences or similarities between the US and other nations’ healthcare systems, or introductions and then links to insightful articles on healthcare or health insurance.
If you are a faculty member, staff member, or student who has completed research or written about international healthcare, please considers submitting summaries of your findings or your ideas for consideration on the blog.
For more information or for questions, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
