Only personal experience, therefore rather limited scope. England: in the loo at a pub, often a condom dispensing machine. And, right over the urinal, a notice from the NHS-National Health Service, urging that you get educated about prostate cancer, call for a pamphlet, talk to your doctor, etc. Presumably you will learn that early detection saves lives.
Dear English mine with sister over there: "There can a wait for some NHS services if the problem doesn't need immediate care. (so many have BUPA, a private, low cost, health insurance provider) to back up NHS care. If it's cancer, the treatment is immediate, red carpet, VIP, just wonderful"
National Health Care for the U.S. so far a non-starter--- as involves the question of provider/insurance company/big pharma executive income.. Brave of President Obama to try to throw the dog a bone with the Affordable Car Act, knowing that Hilary got nowhere with the idea. It seems it will take somebody with the leadership and pull of Jesus hisself to create a federal National Healthcare system in the U.S. Talk with a German or Frenchman/woman of trading their national health schemes.for the higglety-piggelty "I've got mine" non-system in our country.
