Health policy: "No to the demagogic project of Marine Le Pen"

Inspired by a policy of withdrawal, discrimination and divisions, and an identity drift, the program of the National Rally carried by Mrs. Le Pen proposes a restriction of the access of foreigners, in particular conditioned to at least 5 years of work in France, RSA (Revenu de Solidarité Active), family allowances and AME (State Medical Aid) then relegated to the management of urgent care involving the vital prognosis. Does Ms Le Pen know the beneficiaries of this scheme? These are mainly young people with a worse health condition than policyholders of the same age, in extremely precarious situations, treated with medication for more severe pathologies. The AME not only has a humanist vocation but also a health one: this public health system does not only protect the beneficiary individual but also the entire population. Ignoring these patients could have serious repercussions, especially if they were to develop contagious diseases. Have we learned nothing from this pandemic? The economic impact being all the more minor: 0.35% savings on the health budget in France! Limiting access to care means allowing pathologies to develop into more severe forms, which will ultimately cost much more. And what doctor would refuse to provide care? Medical ethics cannot be traded as a political slogan.

Emmanuel Macron makes prevention a central point of his project, to allow us all to live in good health for as long as possible, by moving from a care system to a health system. Concrete proposals are put forward: health check-ups at key ages of life, for children early detection of disabilities, rare diseases and developmental deviations (hyperactivity?, dyslexia, obesity?...) and 30 minutes of daily sport at school, for patients with a chronic illness, personalized support? and connect?, and related detection and prevention plans? health? mental, has? infertility?, a? sickle cell disease... On the other hand, Mrs. Le Pen hardly mentions the subject and places herself on a completely different register, that of repression and the fight against fraud, with a narrowed and guilt-inducing vision. Who wouldn't want to crack down on all fraud? But this cannot become the main goal of an ambitious health program for our country.

Ms Le Pen declares a moratorium on the abolition of beds in public hospitals but maintaining the activity of all hospitals as they are, without mentioning their mission, nor their organization within the territory or their articulation with the medicine of town. What demagoguery! Today the hospital is in crisis and there is a deep malaise among caregivers. A pillar of our health system, the transformation of the hospital is a fundamental project that requires rethinking its missions and its organization in a territorial network. It is a question of developing a synergy between the different structures, with a good distribution on the territory, of optimizing the skills and perfecting the coordination. This will allow a decompartmentalisation of hospital/city, public/private and medical/social. At the same time, it is necessary to consolidate the liberal exercise of the health professions, and to increase the number of downstream structures by transforming certain structures into follow-up care establishments and respite homes. This project is clearly on the program of Emmanuel Macron, who wishes to open it, but through consultation with health actors, patient users and citizens, and local elected officials, relying on the territories, starting from needs rather than the offer.

Concerning the financing of the hospital, Mrs Le Pen's project is to return to a budget in the form of a global allocation with an expenditure envelope fixed a priori, which implies reintroducing all its faults: impossibility of coping with the increases in activity, the transformation of care methods, favoritism towards historically well-endowed establishments which thus benefited from a situational rent. Activity-based pricing (or T2A) also has its pitfalls and limitations, which come more from the choice of management indicators, which are purely quantitative and accountable, a source of the race for productivism, than from the very principle of the reform, which wanted to introduce a empowerment of actors and a search for optimization of the system. Does Ms Le Pen know that public hospitals are already partly funded by operating grants? Why not instead introduce a share of funding based on indicators of quality and relevance of care in order to break with the objective of financial profitability at all costs?

With regard to Europe, Mrs. Le Pen has officially given up on her exit, but her proposals will de facto get us out of it, but without saying so! Without Europe having guaranteed a supply and facilitated their distribution, we would not have had a vaccine against Covid19. Once again, does Mrs Le Pen know that Europe saves the lives of our fellow citizens? Other examples are authentic, with the European platform FOEDUS for the allocation of transplants, which allows when there is no compatible recipient in a country to reallocate the organ in another member country of the European Union. France receives more grafts for our pending recipients than it sends. Do we really want to get rid of all these help and saved lives?

And finally, how can we talk about health and the future without mentioning innovation and new technologies, which are largely absent from Mme Le Pen's programme. Healthcare innovation is both an evolution and a revolution that is already leading to significant improvements in the practices and skills of healthcare professionals, and in patient care pathways. This is an opportunity for France to be the spearhead of this change, and to seize this opportunity, a real economic lever of tomorrow, with other benefits that we must remember: improvement of the quality and safety of care, transformation of dependency management, personalization of care, and reduction of inequalities, all while increasing the overall efficiency of the health system. It is for these reasons that Emmanuel Macron has drawn up the 2030 health innovation plan to make France the 1st innovative and sovereign European nation in health.

We, health actors, have decided to support the candidacy of Emmanuel Macron and call to vote for him. Like Emmanuel Macron, we believe that health is a central subject for the next five-year term and first and foremost a dynamic and innovative sector that creates jobs and wealth. This is a major human and social investment for France, requiring a vision of global health where the protection of human health also involves that of animals and their interactions with the environment. We firmly oppose a regressive, narrowed, discriminatory, guilt-inducing vision and above all without any ambition for the future of our health system.
