Funding the AIDS Epidemic
MetadataShow full item record
This paper deals with a comparative look at how different nations are funding the AIDS epidemic. The United states, Great Britain, and Canada will be compared because these nations represent examples of varying combinations of state and private funding. Health insurance in the United States is usually provided by private insurers. In recent years private companies have fallen short of providing coverage, requiring the government to provide funding. Next consider Great Britain which is providing national health insurance to all. With the option of additional, or even total, coverage from private health insurers. In Canada health insurance is provided only by the government. Everyone is covered, but heavy taxes and long lines take their toll in Canada. Section one concludes with a unique plan combining the best elements from these three nations while trying to eliminate their short falls in attempting to provide funding for AIDS treatments. The second section is an overview of this internship with the American Medical Association in Chicago. Projects worked on, different experiences, and general feelings along with some personal insights. Coming from the Department of survey Design and Analysis. Realizing that this is only one department within a large non-profit organization The final section will attempt to relate work experience and knowledge gained from this internship to former class work performed over the last four years, future goals, and ideals. Whether or not this internship has helped in attaining career goals. What was gained from this internship. Possible future plans.
