Health care should be apolitical, but it isn’t [PODCAST]

By | September 11, 2020

“COVID-19 is a tragedy that could have easily been prevented if our leaders cared more about the well-being of their citizens instead of economies, stock markets, and their political campaigns. To all those arguing about how the economy is more important, I ask, how will sick and dead people contribute to an economy? How will sick and dead health care workers contribute to our already broken health care system, which is a critical part of any economy?

Before we decide to sacrifice our loved ones for the economy, we must remember that a nation cannot flourish if its citizens are not healthy.”

Rabia Jalal is a physician.

She shares her story and discusses her KevinMD article, “Health care should be apolitical, but it isn’t.”
