The latent debate that lies behind this piece of news goes in the wrong direction, always opening up the field to dangerous dogmatic dialectic positions. And now, in times of an economic crisis, that is very likely to convert into a long-term recession, this debate becomes even more heated. The positions are Public against Private and the topics are: Is Healthcare working? How is it provided? How is it evaluated? What is necessary is to take the vast variety of situations the circumstances into account.
One thing is clear, without professionals, there is no Healthcare! Proletarianization and fixed wages without risks, let alone the bureaucratization of the service system, are not adequate incentives to achieve maximum competence and service. What needs to be done now is a thorough reflection on the necessary improvements, the importance of health to each person and society and what each person is willing to contribute, the role of Healthcare... but who dares?!
The role of Healthcare is probably defined by the expansion of individual responsibility. Taking responsibility for our own health is the best prevention and will allow to identify where the system needs to act. Happiness and wellbeing are the absence of fear. Each person must do their part and work on the “I” and the “environment” to be prepared to face any circumstance without fear, and when then somebody gets sick, the system must act.
