Episode 5 – The Greatest Experiment In Social Services

This week David Evans, internationally respected treatment and science literacy expert, joins us from Pasadena, CA as we explore how healthcare might be delivered in the USA. We look at some proposals for Medicare for All that are on the table, and how different strategies led by the public sector and – or the private sector might be implemented. David explains why it’s really important for community organizations providing infectious disease services – particularly HIV – to take notice now. Many of the drugs we use are coming off patent, and this will have major consequences for funding, if we are not prepared.
