                           Northwestern Memorial Hospital’s Conference Center
                           was the home, on Friday, January 28th, for a
                           symposium on the above topic sponsored by the
                           Canadian Consulate General in Chicago.

                           The five principles of the Canada Health Act are the
                           cornerstone of the Canadian health care system and

                           affirms the Canadian government’s commitment to a
                           universal, accessible comprehensive, portable and
    PROGRAM DIRECTOR       publicly administered health insurance system. The
                           Canada Health Act aims to ensure that all residents of
                           Canada have access to necessary hospital and
                           physician services.
                           While many people in the US are familiar with the
                           Canadian system, how the arrangement actually
                           operates is unknown. This educational symposium
                           provided participants with information on the history,
                           organization, and financing of health care in Canada.
                           It explained the five principles of the Canada Health

                           delivering health care and discussed health care
                           practices, management and programs. Experts
                           provided answers on both the basics and nuances of
                           the system.

                           Anne Charles, the Consul General in Chicago, opened
                           the program. First speaker: Kellogg’s Joel Shalowitz,
                           MD, MBA, who spoke on “The History of Canadian
                           Healthcare.” Fresh from his Fulbright in Toronto, Joel
                           gave an overview of how the Canadian System evolved
                           and how it works, as compared to the U.S. system. The
                           second speaker, Claudia Fegan, MD, President of
                           Physicians for a National Health Program, spoke about
                           universal access to healthcare, and how such a system
                           might work in the U.S. Dr. James Calvin, the director
                           of cardiology, Rush University Medical Center,
                           presented the perspective of a provider working within

     ANDREW YOUN’S SUMMER                                      IN    SOUTH AFRICA
     Andrew Youn, about to enter his second year at Kellogg, has been spending his summer in South Africa, working on a program
     to combat AIDS. He recently sent pictures (following page, p. 27) and a description of his activities (below)which we would
     like to share with you.
               Update: I have been running around like a crazy man, and absolutely having the time of my life.
               Because my organization is a start-up and short on staff, they have sent me all over this beautiful,
               beautiful country. It’s like a vacation every week! The natural wonder here is totally out of control.
               You can hardly turn a corner without running into an unbelievable expanse of mountains, or
               breathtaking views into tree-covered valleys, or the sun setting over pastoral hills. At night: a sky
               full of stars.

               Okay where to begin. First, I never thought I’d say this, but “work has been incredible.” The
               founders of my organization are pioneering a new, community-based approach to healthcare. Our
               organization doesn’t rely on big, shiny hospitals to provide AIDS treatment for our patients.
               Hospitals, (particularly shiny ones), are in very short supply in Africa. Rather, we organize poor
               communities to provide medical care for themselves. We go to a community and 1) find the best
               community doctors, who usually operate one-room practices out of a shopping mall, and we give
               them the tools and training to treat AIDS. 2) We supplement the doctors by training and organizing
               a network of community support leaders, who provide the patient follow-up and support that is
               critical for AIDS patients. We basically organize poor communities to look after themselves, and
               these communities are able to mobilize a stunning array of resources. I believe that this concept is
               the future of healthcare in Africa.

               The most gratifying part of my experience has involved actually implementing this healthcare
               model, and getting ground-level experience with these communities. It has been a great opportunity
               to learn about the lives of AIDS patients, poor people in general, community leaders, local
               politicians, and community doctors. The highlight was definitely last weekend, at one of my main
               sites. We held a “patient enrollment, a three day education and enrollment session for patients
               starting in our AIDS treatment program. We were expecting about 50 people. But *200* people
               showed up. It was utter, utter chaos. There were people milling around everywhere, we had nurses
               drawing dozens of vials of blood, we ran out of three different kinds of forms, babies crying, and we
               had to scrounge up more than a hundred additional meals! But when the dust finally settled, my
               coworker and I had educated and enrolled 140 patients onto AIDS treatment over three days.

               I simply cannot describe the emotion I felt. The life expectancy of these patients is less than 12
               months, and I saw in front of me an ocean of people, choosing to live. Each one special. There is
               this amazing little boy I have gotten to know, Mbuso, who has these horrible open sores on his face.
               Yet he is strong like a tree. Standing on a chair, he spoke in front of his community members about
               the importance of taking his medicine every day so that he could live, all in his tiny tiny voice, and
               … I felt so alive to be able to witness him. It was an amazing feeling.

               Thankfully, I haven’t had to digest this all alone. I have had a great South African friend to share
               these experiences with, Zanele (pronounced Zanelay) - we have been a two-person team, traveling
               together for the last two months. This amazing human being is absolutely full of life. Zanele is the
               fourth and last sister in her family, and her name means “enough girls.”

               Zanele educates our patients before they begin treatment, and can tug at the heart of a crowd of
               people like you wouldn’t believe. She has amazing charisma, and wields emotion with great skill.
               She is absolutely tireless, and keeps patients on the edges of their seats, listening and participating
               and laughing, even at the end of seven hours of training. Zanele has this fire within her that doesn’t
               feed off of any fuel I know of - rather, her fire grows stronger with every person she passes it on to.
               She is a born educator and leader.

                                                                                          first patient enrollment session at Edendale. Zanele is teaching these patients

  Another good moment for me, one month later. This is our second patient
  enrollment at Edendale, where a sea of people showed up to take control of
  their health. The best part is that this was all driven by the community leaders
  and doctors that we trained – we hardly did anything. This is the power of
  community-based healthcare.
