Province launches plan to protect universal health care

By Robin Dudgeon, Portage Daily Graphic

The Province of Manitoba recently released Focused on What Matters Most: Manitoba's Plan to Protect Universal Health Care, Thursday, to help protect universal healthcare in the province for families today and in the future.

The plan has three key components: healthier Manitobans, better health services, and better value. These components include many programs which are already in motion in the province.

"I think what it does is it just emphasizes and endorses the work that we are already doing and it raises the profile," said McPhail. "That is really helpful. Whether it's talking about vaccinations, or whether it's talking about screening for cancer all of those things are programs that we have under way and are trying to grow."
