The Danish Health Care System

“The Danish health care system is based on a principle of free and equal access for all citizens. Thus, the vast majority of health services in Denmark are free of charge for the users.”

    I understand that this is one of the few countries that has been able to make government health care work, unlike Britain and Canada.

    Maybe the failure of government health care has to do with having English as the primary language? Nah …

      As a Dane myself (some call me a Great Dane – well, Judy does anyways), given my paternal lineage, I have long been impressed by the social structure, culture, and public policies of modern day Danmark (Denmark) as well as Danish history.

      The USA could learn a lot from Denmark.
