Kaiser Family Foundation sets up health care website for 2008 Presidential campaign

Kaiser Family Foundation has launched a new website in anticipation of the 2008 presidential election. Health care is the top domestic political issue and Kaiser’s Health08.org includes:

  • Analysis of health policy issues, summaries of health reform proposals, and basic facts and information about the health system from Kaiser’s research staff.
  • Regular Kaiser tracking surveys examining the public’s views on health issues and perceptions of the presidential candidates on health care, as well as links to the latest polls by other organizations.
  • Syntheses of news coverage about health and the campaign, updated frequently.
  • Video and podcasts from the campaign trail, including candidate speeches, and health-related highlights from forums and debates.
  • Interviews with candidates and other key players in the health reform debate.
  • Dedicated pages for the candidates, with easy-to-access links to their health positions and other resources.
  • A calendar of events taking place around the country and links to studies and resources from other organizations.
  • A weekly email roundup of developments related to health and the election and free syndication of content available to other websites. Sign up for the email at http://www.health08.org/email.

I’ve had a look at the site and think it will be a valuable resource.
