Healthcare as a right: healthcare as a privilege

There has been a debate on healthcare as a right versus healthcare as a privilege. Also, there are different arguments on the same. Some support the notion that it should be a right. Again, some argue that it should be a privilege and everyone should be able to cater for their healthcare needs. In the US, the challenge has been there. Presidential candidates have always had the healthcare as a right debate. Every one of them seems to agree it is a right.

Position on the topic

Healthcare as a right for all people means that everyone should have access to the health services they need, when and where they need them, without suffering financial. Human  access to safe drinking water and sanitation, nutritious foods, adequate housing, education and safe working conditions.

Evidence to support view

People suffer physically and mentally when they face discrimination. Additionally, discrimination in health care is unacceptable and is a major barrier to development.

Provide appropriate, sound, and thorough evidence to support your view. Include what is our current status on this in the USA, and what you feel it should be.

A common talking point on the right is that health care and health insurance are not equivalent—that getting more people insured will not necessarily improve health outcomes.

Advantages and disadvantages of healthcare as right or privilege

Provide an overview of the advantages and disadvantages of each of these possibilities including the issue of cost (as a right, a commodity, and combination of both of these).
