Report Table of Contents Volume 1: Other Health Co-ops in the World Report Acknowledgments Produced in a very brief span of time — less than nine months — this international report is the result of an intensive investment of skill, determination, and in-depth knowledge. Networking, professional — and diplomatic — skills all had to be mobilized. A very warm thanks must go to the members of the Research Team who totally exceeded my expectations in the face of a huge challenge in data collection and the long intervals spent waiting for replies.
They demonstrated tireless perseverance: Without your unqualified and gracious commitment of time and skill, this report would never have seen the light of day! In the penultimate stage of production, Maria Elena made some highly pertinent observations on the basis of her long experience with international reports of this type. Standing at the crossroads of the Research Team and the Steering Committee, Vanessa Hammond, Chair of the Health Care Co-operative Federation of Canada, also played a very valuable role in this project in so many ways, not the least of which in her hard work on the Canadian case.
All the members of Steering Committee gave generously of their time and experience for the success of this project: My deepest thanks to all of you!
The data which they supplied for this report was mwdrid useful. On the Italian side, Silvia Frezza provided me with very valuable data and a significant case study. The sponsorship of Desjardins Insurance furnished the resources for the printing of this report and the Executive Summary.
The revision and correction of the text were the work of Don McNair. It was a task worthy of a Benedictine monk, requiring complete concentration for hours on end. It was brilliantly done, not to mention marid layout and graphic design. Guisado, who kindly agreed to write the Foreword.
This report first began to emerge near the close ofcourtesy of the trust and the financial engagement of the International Summit of Cooperatives. Despite her many mevico responsibilities Joanne has been always very pro-active in addressing our persistent questions and requests. I hope you will find an echo of your input in this report and moreover, food for thought and action!

After many efforts, false starts, and all manner of difficulties administrative, financial, and cuadroo others the work is done! Still, it is by no means finished. This is just another point of departure in the eternal pursuit of greater excellence and visibility for our movement — the whole cooperative movement, and the health cooperative sector in particular.
But the results were few and far between, mainly for lack of financial resources and extensive sources of information. The concept was not abandoned, however. Jean-Pierre, his commitment unfazed, gathered a new team and sought out more support, which he finally accomplished in conjunction with the organizers of the Quebec Summit.
The purposes of the survey are clear-cut and can be found in the text. But for us here, some other matters should be taken into consideration. The cooperative movement is a reality which, perhaps because it is so much a part of all communities, is frequently either overlooked or underestimated. And, until very recently, our international profile has been seriously lacking. Now, what about health and the importance of health cooperatives to the world? They are not well- known, or at least, not nearly as well-known as they ought to be.
With our sense of co-responsibility we render a service to all communities. As we say, we are grassroots organizations focused on grassroots citizens. We endeavour to augment the concept of health from a holistic perspective, as a means to foster human development in many significant ways. It is our experience that wherever a health co-op takes root, society as a whole grows.
We strive to influence the full range of determinants of health. Report ii We are open to everyone: We have discovered and demonstrated that ours is a solution applicable both to developed and to the so-called developing countries, particularly in this era of financial crisis and ever-increasing health care costs.
The task has been hard. The results can be found here. Some may say that, as inclusive as it is, the survey does not encompass each and every relevant organization.
This may be true in some minor cases; still, the survey remains a good example of astute research. Now we have a comprehensive tool to apply again and again in the study of health co-ops around the world. Let me to take this opportunity to thank all the contributors — the LPS team, IHCO, and ICA — for their contributions to the completion of this portrait of the health cooperative movement. The movement is gaining more and more recognition across a wider spectrum of organizations and fora.
The importance of the issue of health care nowadays is also apparent from the various symposiums, seminars, scientific meetings, etc. It may be difficult for you, the readers, to grasp the complexity of the study, and of the movement itself.
Ultimately, it is difficult to imagine a study which fully captures the realities and facts of health cooperatives. Yet we do exist; moreover, we move along without despair and without illusion. Therefore, I would like to encourage you to read and use this survey and embrace its simple conclusion: We are already providing health services to more than million of our fellow-citizens worldwide! We want you all to get to know our model and just how much it contributes to communities, and then to extend its reach to every corner of the globe.
What is important about the engagement of cooperatives and mutuals in the health and social care sector?
How do these organizations improve access to health care? How are they innovative?

How was the research carried out? A global survey was conducted by an international research team from February to August It covered 59 countries from the five major 20111 of the world.

International Survey Co Op And Mutual Health And Social Care – CMHSC – 2014
Good health is essential to the fulfillment not only of xuadro aspirations of individuals and their relatives but also the aspirations of meduco as a whole. The improvement of human health has a direct impact on many dimensions of life, not the least of which is life expectancy. As reported in World Health Statisticsbased on global averages, a girl who was born in can expect to live to around 73 years of age, and a boy to the age of This is six years longer than medido average global life expectancy for a child born in It is also the consequence of many other influences: In this sense, at the level of public policy, as the 8th Global Conference on Health Promotion in in Finland has asiza, health has to feature in all policies HiAP.
Why Equality is Better for Everyone If the health facility, the clinic for instance, is located too far away from home or work, it could discourage people from accessing services on a regular basis and aggravate their health problems.
They would rather avoid medical consultation than bear with its financial impact. In the long run, for certain, such behaviours also have asksa consequences for individual health. Alternatively, health systems which function under the influence of a bureaucratic or State apparatus, and without any contribution from civil society, asiss experience major asymmetry between supply and demand.
Report 2 local needs. In other words, a negation of the principle of subsidiarity! The policies amdrid with this model commercialized provision, cost recovery, and targeted social protection have had dramatic consequences in the context of high poverty rates.
By their very nature, health systems are always in a state of tension. Moreover, they are rooted in culture and history, which is why these systems vary from one country to another, even when countries have values and principles in common. Even in the same country, when health care responsibilities are decentralized, systems can differ from one state, province, or region to another.
Ideally, health systems should enable civil society participation in the formulation of policies affecting the State or para-State apparatus. Unfortunately, this is not always the situation.
On the one side, there are public organizations, and on the other, there are private ones, based on capital asissa on members.
In other words, we think of systems with two major actors, each with its own set of values and principles. Unfortunately, this perspective totally overlooks millions of persons the world over, South and North, in high- middle- and low-income countries, who are engaged in health organizations of a different sort: Such people are not shareholders, but stakeholders in an organization they own and control! The research was undertaken by a team which sourced information and data from government offices, cooperative organizations, research centres, and in some cases, individual cooperatives.
It provides an overview of the number and variety of member-based organizations which are involved in curative or health treatments but also in health promotion, prevention, rehabilitation, and social care.
