Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.), Barack Obama (D-Ill.) and Hillary Clinton (D-N.Y.) would guarantee access to comprehensive primary healthcare services for all Americans and improve primary care delivery by funding 800 approved new community health centers and adding another 2,900 over the next five years.
