Preventative Health Care

issues_img_health_big.jpgGood health is fundamental to our well-being. The Green Party will put preventative health care front and centre. We will ensure that everyone has access to the physical, mental, and reproductive health care they need, when they need it.

The Green Party will increase the capacity of the Medical Officers of Health, Public Health and Mental Health to better address the social and environmental determinants of health.

The Green Party will increase access to doctors by ending the current bureaucratic control over Medicare billing numbers. We will accelerate the move toward collaborative care family practice teams, so New Brunswickers of all ages and incomes have better access to the expertise of their family, nurse practitioners, dieticians, and counsellors.

The Green Party will develop and implement a women's health agenda, one that will establish comprehensive reproductive health care programming, mental health counselling, chronic disease management, and wellness support for women of all ages.

And we will introduce a Bill of Rights to Protect Children's Health from Environmental Hazards.

Our Principles

>Living within Our Ecological Means

A culture of cooperation, caring and understanding is essential to ending violence in our society. Rehabilitation rather than vengeance must be the goal of our justice system.

> Local Self-Reliance

We must have the opportunity and the responsibility as citizens to contribute to the common good, which requires that all have the capacity to participate in community life.

> Real Democracy

Everyone must have equal access to the necessities of life and be treated with dignity and respect. Treaties with First Nations must be honoured.

> Social Justice and Equality

We must be able to participate in decisions that affect our lives and be guaranteed that our votes are reflected in the make-up of the Legislative Assembly.

> Active Citizenship

Our communities should be in control of their own destinies, supported by strong local economies, and sustained by local sources of food and renewable energy.

> A Culture of Peace and Respect

We must live within the ecological limits of the Earth, while meeting our needs without threatening our children's future or the survival of other species.
