  Publicly funded medicine   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-07)
Publicly funded medicine is a level of medical service that is paid wholly or in majority part by public funds (taxes or quasi-taxes).
Publicly funded medicine is often referred to as "socialized medicine" by its opponents, whereas supporters of this approach tend to use the terms "universal healthcare", "single payer healthcare", or National Health Services.
Publicly funded medicine may be administered and provided by the government, but in some systems that is not an obligation: there exist systems where medicine is publicly funded, yet most health providers are private entities.

 Publicly-funded medicine - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Publicly funded medicine is a healthcare system that is financed entirely or in majority part by government funds (taxes or quasi-taxes) instead of through private payments made to insurance companies or directly to health care providers (health care premiums, copayments or deductibles)
Systems may be funded from general government revenues (as in Italy and Canada), or through a government social security system (as in France, Japan, and Germany) with a separate budget and hypothecated taxes.
Publicly funded medicine may be administered and provided by the government, as in the United Kingdom; in some systems, though, medicine is publicly funded but most health providers are private entities, as in Canada.

 Talk:Publicly-funded medicine - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The article is about "publicly funded medicine" which, as defined in the article, is not the same as universal health care; therefore, the comment is inaccurate and the apartheid remark is irrelevant.
Every publicly funded medical service is likely to be constantly attended by debate and controversy, though I can only speak for what I see in the UK (where issues of the care of a single patient can become national election issues), and see reported about the US.
The article as it now stands is actually not about publicly funded healthcare, but rather is a comparison of the combined private and public features of existing healthcare systems worldwide, and a discussion of relative merits of various health care approaches.

 LATIN AMERICA: NEEDS PUBLICLY FUNDED SOCIAL PROGRAMMES
Health care she argues is the most important welfare state programme in the Latin America context and it is within the technical, if not political, capabilities of most Latin American governments to establish a universalistic system -- with a combination of contributory and non-contributory coverage, but with same facilities for both.

Like privileged groups of beneficiaries, private doctors, hospitals and drug companies are generally in politically strong positions to defend their interests, once they are allowed to assume an important role in the health care systems of a country.

This atmosphere is one of the consequences of socialized medicine-- publicly funded healthcare provided in countries such as Canada, England and much of Western Europe.
Since socialized medical systems are publicly funded, it is important to keep costs at an absolute minimum, which often means settling for doctors who are willing to work for lower wages and hospitals that are not equipped with the most modern services.
“Socialized medicine is great if you’re not sick or if you have a self-limited illness destined to get better by itself,” said Dr. Robert Stern, a pediatric pulmonologist at Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital, one of the university hospitals in Cleveland, Ohio.

A largely publicly funded clinic and a nationally acclaimed AIDS expert have joined to operate a new, expanded program to treat people with AIDS or HIV--and in the process bail out the Valley's largest AIDS care clinic, which was due to close this month because of a funding shortage.
Gottlieb said the clinic will use major advances in treatment announced this year in which patients are given a combination of three medicines, including one from a class of drugs called protease inhibitors, that help stabilize immune damages.
Foundation officials said the funding shortage at the 2-year-old clinic stems from the high cost of the new drug treatment--about $600 per month per patient.
