Abstract

Insuring access to quality healthcare to the citizens is one of the fundamental responsibilities of a ‘Welfare State’. The purpose of this research paper is to compare health care systems in two highly advanced industrialized countries: The United States of America (USA) & Canada. The research paper will provide a description of the health care systems in USA & Canada while exploring historical-cultural & political-structural causes of embarking upon divergent paths to health reform. Further, the paper will analyze their healthcare policies and evaluate them against parameters of ‘equity’ & ‘efficiency’. Finally, USA & Canada’s response to COVID-19 will be assessed to determine whether the government financed universal health-care system of Canada or the combination of government-financed group-specific health coverage and private health insurance in USA is a panacea for public health emergency?
