Breakthrough: Strengthening Mutual Caring and Sharing



The starting point for making and keeping healthcare universally affordable, and accessible is the readiness to pay and care for each other when this is necessary. It relates to sharing the risks and fulfilling the corresponding rights and obligations in terms of behavior and responsible use of shared scarce resources. This concerns financial means but also creating and maintaining a society in which people take care of other people who need attention, help and support. Four examples of brilliant business models who show the way are Ziekenfonds Amsterdam, Dahn, Courtyard Houses & Liebenau.
