The goal of my project was to gain an understanding of the various advantages and disadvantages of a universal system of health care. My focus was on the established systems in England, France, Belgium, Germany, the Czech Republic, Austria, Italy, Switzerland, Spain, and Portugal. Through the use of surveys and follow up questions, I sought to understand various health care issues, including waiting times, disparities in care, physician’s salaries, patient care, and access to primary care.
