Can I say that you are both speaking from two sides of the same coin. Laudable programs of prevention awareness education and poverty stemming progs. need not be stopped. However UHC is definitely a necessity. Some nasty experiences have left me convinced that without access to UHC, a lot more of the world's poor are headed for chronic debilitating ailments that worsen an already painful existence. Many are getting wrong prescriptions from "wicked" drugstore vendors who sell 'dangerous' drugs for treatment of common local ailments; this is a direct result of seeking cheaper alternatives. Truth is, prevention methods will reduce incidence of disease, does it totally remove disease? When the unfortunate episode occurs, if there is a lack of access to appropriate care it rubbishes the previous prevention efforts. Let us have the two sides of the coin!
