Although the United States spends more on health care than any country in the world, access to that care is becoming increasingly difficult. The National Cancer Institute and other federal agencies are sponsoring innovative research for delivering effective medical services, particularly to underserved populations. Models of successful collaboration between private and public sectors concerned with health care can be adapted and implemented at the national, state, and local levels. However, other measures are needed to ensure access to adequate health care for all Americans. Minimal but effective regulations are needed to ensure quality control, reduce duplication of services, and minimize cost increases. Public and private sectors also need to consider ways to extend adequate health insurance coverage to all Americans and to provide compensation for preventive services.
