As important as a clean environment in maintaining human health is a responsive
health care system. Albertans are strongly committed to the publicly funded health
care system and the Government of Alberta shares this commitment. The
government's priorities for health care in the next year will focus on access to health
services, illness prevention and effective regional governance.
The government will provide Albertans with a stronger voice in health system
management. This fall, Albertans will elect two-thirds of the board members of the
17 regional health authorities.
