Health-care reform and the right to health in the USA: our letter on the cover of The Lancet

December 7, 2009

The Lancet, Volume 374, Issue 9705, Page 1887, 5 December 2009
Health-care reform and the right to health in the USA
Laura Turiano, Matthew Anderson, Todd Jailer, Maureen McCue, Mohammad Shahbazi, on behalf of People’s Health Movement—USA



Thanks to everyone who contributed to the editorial! Besides the authors listed (The Lancet has a limit of 5), Michael Terry and Sarah Shannon also should be acknowledged.

One other note – the editorial was written before the inclusion of the Stupak Amendment in the House Bill, otherwise it would have mentioned this violation of women’s right to health.

This has also been posted with additional commentary by one of the coauthors at Social Medicine Portal.
