Medical Reform:
Promoting Healthy Alternatives

September 1994


Medicare in Canada is under siege. User fees are back on the agenda, service cutbacks are under way, the threat of increasing "privatization" and a two-tier system is very real.

The Medical Reform Group, and its publication, Medical Reform, have been addressing the vital social, economic, and political issues facing health care in Canada since 1979.

The Medical Reform Group believes that health care is a right and that the universal access of every person to high quality, appropriate health care must be guaranteed.

Medical Reform advocates positive alternatives. Contributors explore ways of refashioning the health care system so the contributions of all health care workers are recognized and used to their fullest extent.

Medical Reform, published six times a year, is a publication which addresses issues of concern to those seeking to defend and improve our publicly funded universal health care system.

Subscribe to Medical Reform, learn about what is happening in the health care system and what it means, and become part of the discussions taking place in its pages.
