I think in my country, some hospital and pharmacy is not free. medicine is not affordable for poor people but now our government set up a new policy that poor people can check up their health also medicine with free, but I think not spreading between some areas. I hope government should have give more concern about poor people's health indeed. free itsn't for everyone :) thanks Talking point and all who votes here

I hope so. It will be a wonderful thing. But it seems to be difficult to carry out.

In our country, Health scheme recently free for everyone who has no other health security scheme. This means nearly 97-98 % of people in our country are covered by one health scheme and they need not to pay for fee and charge. Thanks to the goverment for giving the free-for-charge health scheme equally to all people in the country. This scheme surely have benifits to all Thai people. But! however, health personnel, especially doctors and nurses, have many trobles from the health scheme. First of all, number of patients is increasing rapidly. Some doctors have to care at least 200 patients per day(I mean 200 patients per a doctor per day). Secondly, as result from increasing patients, most patients need high quality of care. Some expect as high quality as the private hospitals: not wait too long, get the best medicine, get the best intervention, get the best operation, the best health outcome, but as CHEAP as possible! In my opinion, the most challenge our goverment must handle with is how to balance between the quality and the quantity.

What do YOU think?



Yes. Free healthcare should be available to everyone, including prisoners, corruptors, rapists, cold blooded killers, and of course EC members.

OK. Don't kill them. Just ask them to sleep with eyes and mouth open. Good idea :?:

Basic health care should be universal within a nation. I don't know what you mean by "free" since doctors and nurses need to be paid and maintenance of facilities is never free. But it can, and should, be paid for with tax money. In Spain we have a good national health care system (which means it is costly to the taxpayer, but there is no free lunch). In return people with less money can have expensive treatment if needed. It's in everyone's best interest to maintain public health standards and avoid epidemics. I would only exclude heinous murderers, who should be executed out of mercy.

Yes it should be. Some people are too poor to pay for it. Also as free means in this context that the goverment of a country must pay for it I think that the govermant also has to check if funds are used properly and not stolen.

Of course. Free healthcare should be for free for everybody, less for rich people.

Free healthcare should be provided to everyone, as every human should have the right to live and save life in case of any disease. However, that would cost so much that, probably, there is no country in the world that could afford such a solution. I have been living in Poland for 15 years and healthcare is partly free here, but you have to wait for a long time to get your treatment sometimes. So, you go to the private surgery to avoid this. Many people complain about the queues and the system of public healthcare here, but personally I still think it's much better than the one in my home country (Ukraine), where people who go to hospital have to pay for everything, from medicine to anaesthetics and surgical suture, not to mention a bribe to the doctor (at the same time the healthcare is considered to be free according to Ukrainian Constitution!!!) It all ammounts to huge sums of money which many people just don't have, so they don't go to the doctor's even if they really need it.

As far as im concerned free healthcare ought to be available to everyone. Everyone deserves a decent life.We need to take care of our health. Nowadays, many people die cuz of unsuitable healthcare. International organizations should provide people around the world access to healthcare. Im pretty sure, its possible. How can we change the system? Im sorry, i dont know. But i know that necessity is the mother of invention. Together we can do a lot of good things. :-D

In my opinion free healthcare should be avaible to everyone. Healthcare shouldn't depends on nothing. Everyone should have chance to being healthy, it isn't important who you are - rich, poor, student, young or elder - you should have free healtcare. People can have different reasons to being poor. They can lose a job, or be robbed, but they could still have free healthcare. If you say "no" to free healthcare, just remember, that you might need healthcare, but you don't money - and what do you gonna do then?

I think free healthcare should be availabled to everyone. Everyone deserves for decent healtcare and not everyone afford of expensive private doctor or surgery. Country should aim at everyone can have free healtcare and calm life without health problems. That would be the best solution for every citizen.

I am certain that free healthcare should be available to everyone, because peole should not use home remedies. They might be being harmful. If healtcare were available, lots of people would be treated properly. Probably people may be being healthier. They also must not be have illnesses which are hard to cure.

Healthcare should be available for everyone. I think most of us agree with that. But the true problem is how we can change healthcare. Poland is quite poor coutry and there isn't a lot of money for patients. Perhaps in the future, some different goverment will change something. I belive that because economy is still developing.
