Health Care for All Campaign


 Quality, Affordable Health Care for All

AMSA believes that everyone should have access to quality, affordable health care, and that access to comprehensive health services must be recognized and protected as a basic human right, and supports a publicly and progressively financed, privately delivered federal single payer system of high quality, affordable health care for all persons. In its absence, we support health care reform that expands comprehensive coverage and access for all persons living in the United States.
