Question by c_chavez17: How can the United States impose universal health care service such as those from Canada?
With the recent health care reform being discussed in Congress today, how can we here in the US have a health care service such as that of Canada or other countries where health care is very affordable?
Answer by doinou
That would be a dump set back. Why would we want to do that? You obviously have no knowledge of their system. The come to the US for serious care. Where do we go?

Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) July 29, 2013
The Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation (EGPAF) welcomes a new declaration to eliminate HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria by 2030. The pledge was announced at the Abuja+12 Special Summit on HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria, held by Heads of State and Governments of the African Union (AU) on July 15-17 in Abuja, Nigeria. This declaration confirms the AUs steadfast commitment to creating an AIDS-free generation in Africa.
The Special Summit of the African Union centered on the theme, Ownership, Accountability, and Sustainability of HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria Response in Africa: Past, Present, and the Future. The declaration, titled Abuja: Actions towards the Elimination of HIV and AIDS, Malaria and Tuberculosis in Africa by 2030, was released immediately following the Special Summit. It includes a commitment to eliminate mother-to-child transmission of HIV, increase access to HIV care and treatment for children and adolescents, review laws to protect people living with HIV and reduce stigma, create HIV/AIDS prevention programs aimed at young women, and accelerate HIV/AIDS prevention programs.
We are at a critical point in fighting HIV/AIDS in Africa, particularly in our efforts to eliminate pediatric HIV, said Charles Lyons, president and chief executive offer at the Foundation. This latest declaration builds upon the great progress that has been made in recent years to end pediatric HIV. The ambitious goals set forth by the AU will help improve the health of people in Africa and yield economic and social progress, especially for women and children.
The AUs pledge comes on the heels of new, consolidated HIV/AIDS treatment and prevention guidelines, released by the World Health Organization (WHO) on June 30. In line with the AUs declaration, the WHOs guidelines call for expanded prevention and treatment efforts for millions of HIV-positive people in Africa, including providing lifelong access to antiretroviral therapy (ART) to all HIV-positive pregnant and breastfeeding woman and providing ART for all HIV-positive children younger than five years of age.
The AUs declaration signals that African countries are ready to take more ownership of their public health initiatives, said Rhoda Igweta, senior public policy and advocacy officer at EGPAF. Combined with the new WHO guidelines, there is tremendous opportunity for African countries to become global leaders in the effort to achieve an AIDS-free generation. With the right resources in place, the AU should meet its goal to eliminate HIV/AIDS by 2030.
EGPAF is currently one of the largest providers of prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV (PMTCT) services in sub-Saharan Africa, and a leader in the global movement to end pediatric HIV/AIDS. To date, EGPAF has provided PMTCT and other health services to nearly 16 million women and their babies and operates more than 5,500 sites in 15 countries worldwide. Still, more than 900 babies are born HIV-positive every day, mostly in sub-Saharan Africa. Currently, 57 percent of HIV-positive eligible adults receive HIV treatment, but only 33 percent of eligible children living with HIV have access to the medicines they need.

- Glucosamine and Chondroitin Sulfate: Natural Joint Support Do you suffer from joint pain or stiffness? Vitabase is pleased to bring you an affordable yet effective solution that can help you. In recent years two naturally occurring supplements – glucosamine and chondroitin – have become increasingly popular as the product of choice for many people. Both substances are found naturally in the human body. Glucosamine is an amino sugar that stimulates the formation and repair of cartilage; chondroitin is a carbohydrate that promotes elasticity and prevents other enzymes from degrading joint cartilage
- Studies Show Benefits of Glucosamine and Chondroitin Many published studies reported some pain relief obtained from glucosamine and chondroitin. Some research also indicates that the supplements might be able to slow down the rate of further cartilage damage. But the really great news is that no study has so far found any serious side effects from either of these natural products. Some research findings have been criticized for possibly being biased or not being conducted over a long enough period. Conservative bodies such as the Arthritis Foundation have cautiously advised sufferers of osteoarthritis to try the supplements for themselves since there is very little risk and because the supplements may well provide the pain relief they desire.
- Label Information and Ingredients: Suggested Use: As a dietary supplement, adults take three (3) tablets daily at mealtime, or as directed by a health care professional. Store in a cool, dry place and away from direct light.

Outsourcing Front And Back Office Functions Can Cause Regulatory Traps. Here Is How You Can Prevent Your Practice Fall Prey To The Traps!
Many health care facilities and providers have turned to laypersons and companies to handle some or all front and back office functions. These resources are typically not licensed, not subject to regulatory scrutiny and may be based domestically or overseas. This type of delegation is often touted as saving costs and allowing providers to focus on patient care rather than administrative functions.
Delegating responsibilities in this manner, however, does not relieve the health care provider or facility from responsibility for regulatory compliance with respect to the outsourced functions. Further, under state and federal laws, some functions should not be assigned to non-licensed persons. Likewise, it is necessary to do due diligence to be sure that a company or layperson can make good on errors or noncompliance.
Join nationally-known healthcare attorney & expert Wayne J. Miller, Esq., for a 60-minutes audio conference. He’ll explore the risks and traps to avoid in outsourcing front and back office functions. Wayne will discuss areas to focus on in vetting possible candidates for outsourced billing and management functions.
