Best of Basic Health Access Blogs

The Basic Health Access Blogs typically arise as a critique of various media pieces or claims made by various health care organizations, government bodies, or foundations. Given the sad state of objective critique at all levels and the well-financed need to satisfy numerous distracting agendas, there is far too much subject material. The fact of the matter there is little positive to write about Basic Health Access and this has been true since 1983.

If you want the usual news or literature with typical opinions, this blog is not for you. If you want to gain awareness regarding the designs, false claims, and confusions that lead to lesser health care outcomes and deficiencies of health access - read on.
