Looks like the US isn't just behind in maternal and neonatal death rates, but healthcare as a whole is in a real crisis here.
Just read this article this morning.
Which makes me wonder, where does the money go? What happenes with the outrageous insurance premiums we pay? This illustrates, more than ever, that we need some serious change in this country. Rather than playing global police, maybe we should first focus on taking care of the people right here. What really struck me was that other countries manage to spend less and still come out ahead. So maybe it's not all about money. Actually, I personally believe that if everyone was provided with adequate preventive care, these statistics could be greatly improved at a very low cost. Thoughts? Opinions?
