“Clearly bringing great information to the forefront in this very important time for health system facts.”
— Ben Handel, PhD, Associate Professor of Economics, University of California – Berkeley
Health Systems Facts is a project of the Real Reporting Foundation.
It will follow the same approach as its sister Drug War Facts by providing excerpts with citations and links from governmental comparative health care studies, peer reviewed articles, and other authoritative sources. This will again be done without bias or editorial comment.
Our task is to once again offer useful information to a debate that is often characterized by myths, ignorance, emotion and dissembling.
When first published over twenty years ago, Drug War Facts consisted of a twenty page booklet. Today its web site is an authoritative source for information on seventy drug policy related issues. It has had over twelve million visitors.
We perceive Health Care Systems evolving in a similar manner and not becoming comprehensive for at least two years and then being updated continuously.
We share the view that over time an informed society will generate wise approaches.
