July 13, 2007—The Kaiser Family Foundation, Menlo Park, Calif, has launched health08.org, a new Web site devoted to providing information about health care and the 2008 presidential campaign via polling, analysis, facts, news, video, interviews and other resources.

Since March, Kaiser’s tracking poll on health and the ’08 election has indicated that health care is a top domestic issue, second only to Iraq on the public’s priority list.

"For the first time since the early 1990s, there is a buzz in the air about the potential for a major debate about the future direction of our health care system, and how the issue plays in this presidential election will frame that debate," said Kaiser president and CEO Drew E. Altman. "With health08.org, we will be there from start to finish with news and video as it happens, analysis of the issues, and tracking of where the public stands."
