The Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP), Privatization and the Destruction of National Healthcare in Asia
With Dr. Claudia Chaufan UCSF and others.
The drive to remake national healthcare systems in Asia is now proceeding with the planned TPP agreement.
According to this accord, which has been shaped by drug, chemical and the healthcare insurance industry, healthcare systems in Asia will be pushed to replicate the US insurance controlled healthcare system. This is privatization on steroids.
Co-sponsored by California Chapter of Physicians For National Healthcare and UPWA.
