Saskatchewan has a long tradition of caring for the sick and the elderly. From the farm women who campaigned for improvement in rural housing and health, to the Saskatchewan Anti-Tuberculosis Commission which pioneered the testing of school children for the disease, to the first government-operated air ambulance service in North America in 1946, to the provision of free treatment for cancer patients, to the implementation of Medicare in 1962, Saskatchewan has been a leader on the world stage in providing quality treatment at no charge to all residents.
