The Film Club of the Society of International Affairs in Gothenburg (Utrikespolitiska föreningen Göteborg) invites you to a free film screening!
"A documentary that explores the downfalls of health care privatization in Norway and the West.
Governments apply models taken from business corporations in order to improve our health care systems. The goal is to get more health for the money spent, based on the presumption that private corporations are more efficient and less wasteful than public bodies.
Now the public administrations are molded towards the standards of private companies. This is done through a variety of reforms all over Europe. Hospitals are established as financially independent corporations and required to generate enough income to break even. They are expected to produce health at a fixed cost - not to cover actual needs.
Could it be that we by trying to fix the health service, have created a monster? Is the disease and suffering of individuals of such a nature that market mechanisms are the best tools with which to treat them?"
Free for everyone! After the screening we will go to a nearby pub to hang out and discuss the movie.
Presented in co-operation with Cinema Politica
Göteborg, Sprängkullsgatan 25
