Access to care is a very nebulous term that can mean several different things. For example, it could mean the financial ability to pay for care, the availability of providers, or the timeliness in which one can be seen for care. Regardless of how one defines it, it is a very important descriptor of a nation’s health care system. Write a brief response (short paragraph) about one of the following two topics:
-What does the level of access to care within any given nation say about how that nation prioritizes population health?
-How does access to care impact population health?
