Conferences@934: Public health in France and the USA

Public health in France and the USA

France voted the Universal health care coverage in 1999. In the US, the Affordable Care Act, enacted under President Obama, is also an effort to expand access to health care. If both our countries expand the right to health, our health care systems are challenged by the recent economic and financial crisis. Dr Fahs and Fulillove will compare and contrast how government funding in each nation is impacting on matters of public health and access to medical care.

- Dr Marianne FAHS, Professor of Health Policy and Management in the CUNY School of Public Health

- Dr Robert FULLILOVE, Associate Dean for Community and Minority Affairs at Columbia University
