There are too many people who are living off the system, who are capable of working, that get free heath care, while there are people who hold jobs that do not qualify, even those who have worked their entire life and have become disabled.
We want to petition that health insurance be provided for the people who worked or earned their right to get help from our country not just provided to those who live off the system without learning the responsibility of a hard days work. This comes from families that have been denied state health coverage because their gross income is above poverty level, but never really taken in to account that these families spend out most of their income to raise their families, whether they are biological, adopted, foster families, grandparents or other kin raising families.
The income bar is set too low for families who need care to meet unless they become unemployed and even then we do not get help in most cases. The insurance that is approved for these individuals is not accepted by over ninety percent of providers in Florida. The deductibles are too high to meet to be approved monthly.
The City of Tyler Has very limited access to medical treatment of STD's. Clinics, Hospitals, and Public assistance organizations Deny treatment for STDs if you don't have money to pay up front.....
This bill is about the reduction of risks and building of trust; it has been written as a means to ensure that Medical Professionals receive crisis management and anger management training.
This bill will also mandate that medical professionals take a Hippocratic Oath once a year, as to combat the often callous nature of some people who work in medicine. This bill also mandates a few other things like: the use of treatment plans, and using respectful language with patients. Our daughter recently lost her life, and most of the medical staff surrounding her at her death were panicked, angry or callous. They had forgotten their medical training because they were not trained on how to handle themselves emotionally in a crisis.
I can't say if she would have lived if her medical staff would have been emotionally in control of themselves, but I can say her odds would have been better. The entire bill can be found online at: http://humanityinhealthcare.wordpress.com/
A regulation should be enacted to ensure a safe a patient telemetry technician ratio. With no guideline in place a technician may watch as many patients as the facility holds. As a Telemetry Technician of over ten years I can attest to my senses becoming overwhelmed at fifty plus patients.
When your senses become overstimulated a person may simply silence an alarm to eliminate the noise and disregard the patients ectopy.
A recommendation of a technician patient ratio of 1:48 would create quality care for future patients. No arrhythmia should be missed due to technician burnout.
This film provides incredibly important insight into the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, the political philosophy from which it sprang, and its inevitable results.
Facebook is the most used social network on the world wide web today with an average of approximately 1.01 Billion users per month. It's used to advertise, reconnect with family and friends as well as campaign for any political office.
Why not go one step further and allow the American people to cast the vote on Voting day via Facebook. You can pay bills, watch, television, go to school and so many other things via the Internet, why not make it easy for someone to cast their vote for their candidate via a secure app on Facebook.
There are so many Facebook users that would love to vote but for various reasons may not be able to physically get out to do it. Facebook would give them that chance. Facebook was flooded during the presidential debates. Imagine if every one of those users were able to cast their vote and really take part of their American Right. The turnout would be tremendous. The American voice would definitely be heard.
$138 million dollars taken from women's healthcare, teens cut off from contraception, 53 low income clinics across the state closed, and healthcare dollars funneled to crisis pregnancy centers that don't offer healthcare - this is your legacy.
Gov. Perry, you can't tell us that a state that is number one in business can't also be number one in women's healthcare. Restore the federal dollars for women's healthcare and reinstate Planned Parenthood in the Women's Health Program - today.
Don't let your legacy be one of shame.
This petition aims to positively influence the approach the European Commission is taking in its efforts to regulate Complementary and Alternative Medicine across the 27 Member States of Europe.
Disproportionate, poorly thought-through legislation represents the single greatest threat to natural health care in the European Union.
Standards of education and training being proposed.
by the European Commission in its efforts to regulate Complementary and Alternative Medicine across the 27 Member States of Europe
The threshold entry route to the register will be through a Bachelor degree with Honours which is comparable to the majority of other medical professions.
Entry to the register may also be possible through possession of an appropriate Masters degree; this is consistent with other professions including physiotherapy, radiography and occupational therapy.
Overseas qualifications will need to be considered separately
We agree that some standards of training and practice should be applied, but to demand that a hairdresser, who is giving an Indian Head Massage must have Bachelor degree with Honours as a minimum qualification to do so is ludicrous.

Hello my name is Barbi Watts, I’m a R.M.A. and have been a nurse for twenty-one years. I work in the field of cardiology. I have returned to college after twenty-one years to achieve my RN & P.A.
Upon going back to college the course structure had changed. I was forced to take another Government, ALGEBRA, and Creative writing, and passed all of them however…I have to ask the question, WHY DO I HAVE TO TAKE ALGEBRA TO BE A NURSE?
Yes, we will need to know formulas, I understand that. When will I ever find the y-intercept on a patients chart? When will I need to know the slope point formula to document anything in a chart? Having to take a government class….. Because I’m not going to school to be a Politician, I’m going to school to become a Physician Assistan, to save lives!
The ANSWER I got was these classes give you a well-rounded education. I want to make a big change nationwide and I need everybody’s help. I’m not a political person at all, I live, eat, and breathe nursing, it’s what I know it’s what I do. I have to give credit to Michelle Obama for making the changes in schools for healthier eating. That was awesome!
If a well-rounded education includes math, algebra, science, English, arts, music, home economics (cooking, sewing), driving education etc…..
What is wrong with making CPR and First Aid mandatory!! The class could be a two day class now, how much have we sacrificed of the students? In High School a junior/senior and a college student. Just think if everyone by the time they graduated was able to perform basic CPR and First Aid, now that’s rounding the education .How many automobile accidents happen to students in high school, would have been able to save their friends life, or at least keep them stable. And the student that comes home to their parent having chest pain and they collapse? A chocking victim eating dinner out somewhere,? If we had a little bit of healthcare everywhere the world would be better off would it not? Think about the students on the football field and their buddy’s notice the symptoms of a stroke even if the coach do not, that’s the kind of stuff I’m trying to say here. How many accidents happen in the college dorms that lives could be saved? A high school graduating class in a large city of (A) 2000 students, multiply that by (B) thousands of cities, and compare that to the number of (C) =deaths that happen every day that could have been prevented, simply because there was no one who knew how to do simple 1st Aid or CPR till the EMS arrived, or just simply revived them.
If you calculate the numbers above A*B=C anyway you look at it would be a positive number if we made the change!!!
When my petition has enough signatures, it’s going to become a proposal and then a bill; I’m going to all the way to the floor of the White House. Knowing how to save lives should be mandatory.
Regarding attempts to overturn the Healthcare Reform Bill.
A ‘Judas Moment’, that's what some are calling Justice John Roberts great betrayal of America’s trust when he cast his lot with the liberals to uphold Obamacare.
‘Ten pieces of silver’ or not, Robert’s ruling for Obamacare is a total disaster. It must be stopped!
Our elected leaders must reject Obamacare at every turn until the day voters plunge a wooden stake through the heart of this unconstitutional monstrosity.
We appreciate Speaker Boehner's willingness to vote again on the full repeal of ObamaCare. But there is more we can do in Congress. It's called Defund Obamacare, and it won't cost the taxpayers a penny!
In Federalist No. 58, James Madison wrote that the “power over the purse may, in fact, be regarded as the most complete and effectual weapon ... for obtaining a redress of every grievance…”
12. Canadian nurses decry dismantling of health, social and environmental protections -- Les infirmières canadiennes décrient le démantèlement des programmes de protection sociale et environnementale de la santé
The federal government has moved quickly to pass Bill C-38, the omnibus budget implementation bill entitled the Jobs, Growth and Long-term Prosperity Act. Rather than ensure the sustainability of Canada’s social and environmental protections, this bill reduces funding and oversight. These reductions will only lead to larger and costlier problems for Canadians and their governments in the future. If passed, this legislation will, among other measures, reduce income security, shrink employment insurance, weaken investments in food safety and security, harm employment equity provisions, dismantle environmental regulation, and backtrack on climate-change policies.
Canadian nurses are sending a loud and clear message to the Conservative government: stop cutting Canada’s environmental, health and social systems.
As more than 800 registered nurses (RNs) gathered in Vancouver on June 18 for the Canadian Nurses Association’s (CNA) annual general meeting and biennial convention, they demanded action to halt the systemic dismantling of income security programs, environmental protection measures and investments in health. Assembled nurses urged Prime Minister Stephen Harper and members of parliament to stop these cuts, which are fundamentally irresponsible and damaging to the health and wellness of Canadians.
CNA declared that RNs will speak out against these cuts, and that the association will support its members to protect the integrity of essential programs and the health of our nation.
CNA calls upon Canadian nurses, other healthcare providers, and members of the public to endorse CNA’s Declaration by signing this petition and asking others to sign!

Le gouvernement fédéral a rapidement fait adopter le projet de loi C-38, le projet de loi omnibus sur la mise en œuvre du budget intitulé la Loi sur l’emploi, la croissance et la prospérité durable. Plutôt que d’assurer la durabilité des programmes de protection sociale et environnementale du Canada, ce projet de loi réduit le financement et la surveillance. Ces réductions budgétaires entraîneront seulement des problèmes plus importants et onéreux pour la population canadienne et ses gouvernements dans l’avenir. Si cette loi est adoptée, parmi d’autres mesures, elle réduira la sécurité du revenu, restreindra l’assurance-emploi, diminuera le financement dans la salubrité et la sécurité alimentaires, nuira aux dispositions sur l’équité en matière d’emploi, démantèlera le règlement sur l’environnement et reculera concernant les politiques sur les changements climatiques.
Les infirmières canadiennes envoient un message fort et clair au gouvernement conservateur : mettre fin aux réductions budgétaires à l’environnement et aux systèmes de santé et de services sociaux du Canada.
Alors que plus de 800 infirmières et infirmiers autorisés (IA) se rassemblent à Vancouver à l’occasion de l’assemblée générale et du congrès biennal de l’Association des infirmières et infirmiers du Canada (AIIC), on demande d’adopter une mesure qui permettra de mettre fin au démantèlement systématique des programmes de la sécurité du revenu, des mesures de protection environnementale et du financement de la santé. Les députés fédéraux et les sénateurs doivent cesser ces réductions budgétaires, qui sont profondément irresponsables et qui nuisent à la santé et au bien-être de la population canadienne.
L’AIIC a déclaré que les infirmières et infirmiers autorisés s’opposeront à ces réductions budgétaires dans les programmes et que l’association soutiendra ses membres afin de protéger l’intégrité des programmes essentiels et la santé de notre nation.
L’AIIC demande aux infirmières canadiennes, à d’autres fournisseurs de la santé et aux membres du public d’appuyer cette déclaration de l’AIIC en signant cette pétition et en sollicitant d’autres signatures!

Recently, the Texas Health and Human Service Commission has reinterpreted laws which now prohibit transporting children to appointments without the accompaniment of a legal guardian.
In addition, the new interpretations have ceased all free transportation services provided by providers. According to the US Census Bureau's American Community Service, Hidalgo and Cameron counties rank number 1 and number 2, respectively, as the poorest counites in all of Texas.
This, combined with the issue of a multitude of undocumented families, access to care under the new interpretations of the law are places major barriers on Valley families.
ObamaCare caused health insurance to skyrocket from around $13,000 to now over $15,500 for family insurance with never-ending annual increases. Our take home pay is reduced by this amount and all of this money goes directly to Big Money Political Donor Insurance Companies.
Plus we pay out-of-pocket co-pays up to average deductible amounts of $1,000-$2,000. Sign the petition now to replace this broken system with our new "Citizen-Centered Platform of Solutions" that gives every citizen the "American Freedom Benefit Package."
If you help us and we win, just one of your many new benefits will be the American Healthcare Freedom Plan where we simply take up to $6,000 per individual and $12,000 per family away from the insurance companies and place it directly in your 100% Government Exempt Trust Fund that is never taxed and is fully inheritable. Then you can have a secure fund to cover all routine and preventative care expenses, and if you ever you reach your annual deductible your plan automatically converts to 100% insurance coverage.
All unused funds roll over to future years so you can build a huge TAX FREE Health Assurance Account (HAA) Trust Fund. One of the many magnificent benefits of this plan is that all accumulated funds above your annual deductible can be used for your personal needs.
Now instead of being forced to invest in risky and corrupt markets where average investors lose 30%-70% of our wealth every 8-13 years or save with banks that lend our own money to us a 4%-20% or more while giving us less than 1% on our savings we will now be able to invest in ourselves and our families. Now, we will be able to skip the banking middlemen and finance our own purchases from orthodontics and elective medical procedures to automobiles and home improvements to education costs to virtually all of our major life needs.
With your new benefit package you will be able to finance your own purchases from your pent up retirement and healthcare funds and repay yourself with interest. In the end you will own the things you need in life and when you repay your loans to yourself you will have tremendous wealth.
Our politicians voted to implement ObamaCare against the will of the people and before they even read the bill. Now we know that ObamaCare was 2,900 pages of political payoffs to Big Money donors that exacerbates all of the problems of our current system to make them worse. The AHFP solves all of the root problems in our current system to slash healthcare costs in every area. You will love our Total Citizen-Centered Platform that solves all of the major issues our country faces because we drastically decrease the costs of living while dramatically increasing the standard of living for every American Citizen. We also save taxpayers $2 Trillion annually with our total platform of solutions that ends deficit spending, pays off our national debt and brings solvency back to our local, state and federal budgets.
Sign our petition now so we can get to work for you, and then tell everyone you know to do the same. Go here for the complete details: http://goo.gl/4o9oZ
The death penalty has become time consuming, cost-inefficient and has had no clear effect on the deterrence of crime. In a time of economic recovery, the call to abolish a wasteful punishment is way past due.
It is time we stop allowing the government to put our budget in the death penalty and start putting it into education and health care.
Racism is on the rise. USA Government needs to take further steps to protect the rights of it citizens.

Rare disorders affect about 1 in 12 persons, or 2.7 million Canadians. These people are Canada’s most vulnerable citizens and need your support. We are requesting that the political parties of Canada answer the following three questions on rare diseases in Canada.
Your name will be sent along with this petition to the political parties of Canada.
I am creating this group in the hope that i can stop a very sad but very common situation occurring in many neonatal intensive care and pedeatric intensive care units across the country! The NHS unfortunately as we all know is a very sad state of affairs and budgeting is inevitably happening throughout but many doctors are now making life saving decisions based on the cost to the nhs rather than what they are there to do and that is if possible SAVE A LIFE!
Every parent that has ever had a very poorly child in an intensive care unit is most likely very aware of and possibly experienced themselves the heartbreaking reason i am creating this group and that is the negligent care given to my son during his 4 month stay on these such units due to lack of beds, budgeting and future cost to the NHS, resulting in us losing our little angel.
Before i tell you my storey i must state that this group is being created in regards to cost cutting in areas where it is desperately needed, And the treatment received once a doctor feels that there is no point in saving your child based on a DISABILITY! I am in no way slating intensive care and paediatric care units as a whole in fact these units do save lives and are a pure godsend to thousands of babies, children and their family's on a daily basis!
One of the main areas of concern is for that of premature baby's, a huge debate is under-way in the country on a regular basis as to weather a child should be saved as early as 23 weeks, but it seems that other areas around this topic are not being accessed like ways to prevent and detect early labour, ways to ensure adequate numbers of nurses on the wards and the main issue BEDs or COTs and the extreme lack of them resulting in hundreds of very sick babies being transported by ambulance to other hospital's when they are really not fit to travel! The majority of people see doctor's as people that you can trust and you trust a doctor with your child's life and in the majority of cases this is the case and thank god for these people but there are circumstances from within the NHS when parent's have found themselves pushed into a corner, bullied and untrusting in the doctor caring for there child due to the circumstances surrounding them and this is a very scary situation as when the only person that can save your child does not want your child to survive what do you do?
Although it is illegal for a doctor to remove care from a child without legal permission or a parent's permission unfortunately it does still happen and there is nothing you can do absolutely NOTHING as when a team of doctor's make a decision however against it you the parent's and the nurses caring for your child are, illegal actions can be taken and as long as this is covered in medical notes you have no way of proving it and living knowing that a group of doctor's are allowed to continue practising medicine after what they put your child through is a very hard thing to live with I live in hope that the government can stop sick children being shipped from hospital to hospital when they are to ill to be moved, for the government to provide better help and finances to the future of this World CHILDREN!
And for us the parent's to have more right as although legally we do, this unfortunately did not stop the doctor's in my case from a lot of deception and lies. So i am calling for all parents to have immediate access on a daily basis to their child's medical notes while in hospital and the right to have an advocate record all meetings when requested so no more deception can take place! Unfortunately i was refused this many many a time!
The reason for outrageous medical cost in America is simple: Prohibitive Regulation = Prohibitive Cost.
Severe licensing restrictions orchestrated by doctors and enacted by legislators to limit competition have created a critical artificial shortage of doctors; and additional ludicrous, stifling regulation of all aspects of the medical industry has pushed the cost of medical services well beyond the financial means of much of the population.
Collaborative drug therapy management (CDTM) enables patients to receive optimal care by means of a team-based approach. Physicians and pharmacists can work together to ensure patients are meeting therapeutic goals. Currently, CDTM is allowed in hospitals and long-term care settings.
Indiana is one of only 6 states that limits CDTM to hospital-based sites. HB1111 would expand CDTM to all physician clinics under a physician-directed protocol. This would allow pharmacists to further assist physicians in managing chronic disease states, which allows physicians more time to focus on other patients. This provides patients with increased accessed to care. There is a public need for HB1111.
According to the Indiana State Department of Health, 31% of Hoosiers had hypertension in 2009, 40% had high cholesterol in 2009, and the prevalence of diabetes increased by 12% from 2005 to 2009. Show your support and impact health care in Indiana!
The citizens of Rural America face challenges daily attempting to access healthcare. Awareness of the issues that Rural residents face when obtaining healthcare needs to be publicized.
The United States Department of Health and Human Services has made a tremendous effort to bring awareness to the many barriers of healthcare for Rural Americans by publicizing many documents and through an informative website www.Healthcare.gov . Shockingly almost one third of adults living in rural areas are in poor to fair health. This shocking statistic is a result of the lack of access to adequate healthcare in rural areas.
Adequate healthcare is difficult to obtain in Rural America. The rural communities of America lack primary care physicians, adequate funding for health programs and preventive healthcare. Residents of Rural America struggle to obtain transportation to obtain healthcare because there are few local physicians and the healthcare providers available are a distance away. Many low income and impoverished rural families do not have transportation or their transportation is limited.
Like any other citizen insurance and unaffordable costs are factors hindering rural Americans from obtaining healthcare. The economic downfall has caused a rise in unemployment rates as well as the number of uninsured. Many Rural Americans are either uninsured or underinsured not able to cover the costs of healthcare. The government implemented and funded programs are not publicized in rural areas as much as they are in urban areas. The resources that larger and more urban areas have should also be available to rural America.
Government officials have continuously overlooked the issues that hinder so many families from obtaining healthcare. Many of the rural communities do not even have a local hospital or any type of educational health programs. There are very few almost no free health screening in rural areas. The rural community cannot be over looked any more the health of Rural American communities is suffering. Sign this petition to bring awareness to these issues and solutions and funding to Better the Healthcare for Rural America.
Potential Institute Name Change - H.R.1348/S. 1101 - On March 6, 2007 , Representatives Patrick Kennedy (D-RI) and John Sullivan (R-OK) introduced H.R.1348 to re-designate the National Institute on Drug Abuse as National Institute on Diseases of Addiction, and to re-designate the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism as the National Institute on Alcohol Disorders and Health.
Similarly , on March 28, Senators Joseph Biden (D-DE), Edward Kennedy (D-MA) and Michael Enzi (R-WY) introduced S. 1101, the Recognizing Addiction as a Disease Act of 2007 , which would make the same changes. In a press release, Senator Biden said the intent of the legislation is to recognize addiction as a preventable and treatable neurobiological disease, and to better identify the roles and missions of our research institutes. "Addiction is a neurobiological disease - not a lifestyle choice - and it's about time we start treating it as such", said Sen. Biden. "We must lead by example and change the names of our federal research institutes to accurately reflect this reality. By changing the way we talk about addiction, we change the way people think about addiction, both of which are critical steps in getting past the social stigma too often associated with the disease. "
The House bill was referred to the health Subcommittee of the Energy and Commerce Committee; the senate bill was marked up and passed by the Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee on June 27 , 2007. The bill has been placed on the Senate calendar under General Orders. The bill is currently being "held" by Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC). He must release his hold if the bill is to receive full consideration in the Senate.; Exert taken from 2008 edition of N.I.D.A Publication.
I am starting a petition on getting the Canadian Government to recognize that oral health is as important as any other part of the human body, and emergency procedures and pain relief should be covered by Medicare.
Letting people who live in low income situations having to live with pain and a chance of major infection and possibly death is against basic human rights.
The media has reported incidents of racism at TEA Party rallies. Though unsubstantiated in many cases, there is some evidence of this. The goal of this petition is to condemn any sign of racism at any TEA Party event or Town Hall meetings around the country.
By signing this petition, you pledge to condemn racism in politics at every level. The petition signatures will be forwarded to the media, in hopes that they will report this effort.
Many people with severe medical conditions and disabilities are being automatically forced to undergo a Work Capability Assessment by the private company Atos Healthcare, and having their ESA sickness benefit cut off as a result.
Atos Healthcare is contracted for £500million over 7 years and is working under contract to the DWP to meet the government's target of forcing 1 million claimants onto Employment Support Allowance. Those claimants suffering from the following conditions (Atos' descriptions of the conditions, not mine) are, by policy, automatically required to undergo an assessment: Alcohol Dependence, Anxiety, Depression, Drug Dependence, Panic Attacks.
Those suffering from the following are, by policy, to be ‘tentatively’ invited: Agoraphobia, Anorexia Nervosa, Bipolar Affective Disorder/Bipolar Disease Manic Depression, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Eating Disorder, Learning Difficulties, Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME), Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Phobic Anxiety, Social Phobia.
Those suffering from the following may be invited if so advised by the 'Medical Advisor': Mental Retardation, Mental Subnormality, Parkinson's Disease, Schizoaffective Disorder, Schizophrenia, Severe Depression.
All of us who sign this petition support it, even if we are expats or residents of other countries.
Atos Healthcare has the £80million-per-year contract for 7 years to act for Department of Work & Pensions (DWP) to 'assess' sick people claiming Employment Support Allowance (ESA).
They have been working to the previous government's target of pushing 1 million claimants onto Jobseekers' Allowance, and there are some well-documented abuses of vulnerable individuals such as refusing to allow note-taking or tape-recording of the assessment, failing to report truthfully where the claimant has demonstrated incapacity, inadequate facilities for those who are ill during an assessment, a computer system which gives garbled versions of examinations to DWP and various other abuses.
Update, August 2011: Owing to lack of free time there is only so much the admin can do regarding this petition. Anyone wishing to do more than sign this petition can write at any time to David Cameron, 10 Downing Street, London SW1A 2AA. You can also ask everyone you know to view the petition and, if they agree to sign it and ask everyone in turn they they know to do the same. Advertising it on Facebook and Twitter would also increase attention for the cause. Thanks for reading this.
Update, March 2011: Atos' contract is now worth £300 Million as the Government rolls out medical testing of I.B. patients with the eventual aim of testing disabled claimants too. To look at deaths reportedly caused by Atos, Google "Sack Atos" and "Atos deaths".
We are future midwives. So needed. So close to qualifying. We need your help.
The UK is dangerously short of midwives. The midwives surviving the profession are dedicated and hard-working. The women giving birth to their babies need competent healthy and loving midwives alongside them at this precious and potentially dangerous and awesome event in their lives.
The tax-payer is spending many thousands of pounds preparing future midwives.
One of these future midwives is 4 months away from the completion of a 3 year course demanding 150 hours a month of placement and lectures plus many additional hours of personal study.
She is a mother of 2 very young children. She is a partner, daughter, sister and friend. She has been wonderfully mentored and trained by dedicated, overworked midwives. She has lived near the poverty line, suffered ill health and lost many nights sleep to fulfill her dream of becoming a midwife.
She has personally and safely ushered women and infants into motherhood. A privilege that she has dedicated her all to train for and a role that she has been assessed on and performs more than competently.
She narrowly failed an essay on the public health role of the midwife 3 times.
4 months before realisation of her dream she has been kicked off the course.
Please could you 'like' this page and sign our petition in support of her appeal for a chance to complete the course so that many more women to come can have the benefit of this loving dedicated future midwife alongside them. The UK so desperately needs dedicated midwives. So much has been given by the tax-payer, mentors, lecturers and students already. Kicking her off the course at this stage would be a tragic, heartless, short-sighted and wasteful act.

PATA TIBA HEALTHCARE PROGRAM
Health care is a basic right for human beings. Provision of quality, accessible and affordable healthcare services has been a challenge to the majority of population due to:
• Lack of financial support

It is against such a backdrop that AID KENYA FOUNDATION proposes to undertake a community health project in the region. The Foundation is determined to make the 1st Pata Tiba Medical Camp in KITUTU Community, Kisii, on May 22-23 a success story.

In such a project health care professionals (medical doctors, pharmacists, nurses and dentists) will provide free health services including:
• Medical check-up
• Provision of drugs
• Counseling and health education.
To undertake such a project, the following resources are required;
• Human resource-medical doctors, pharmacists, nurses and dental

The people of The United states do not want socialized healthcare. We have said this when it was still an idea, we have said this when it was in the House, we said it when it was in congress, and we are demanding it to stop now.
