[casi] Effect of hospitals

[ Presenting plain-text part of multi-format email ]

I was very surprised to read Judith's post attached to Ghazwan's latest post. It seems somewhat 
hypothetical to say that if all the hospitals in the world were closed down, this would have very 
little effect on child mortality rates. Very often hypotheses are disproved by fact.

I am struggling to imagine how children who are suffering from malnutrition and disease are put at 
no disadvantage because there is no medical care available to them. Surely having qualified doctors 
at hand with the necessary equipment and medicines would improve the chances of the sick?

Have I misread the post or am I the only one who finds it incredible that somebody can say that the 
availability of health care is of minor concern?
