    provide for or provide

    I think that the public policy needs to become really, really serious about equal access to services—to provide for access to health services, schooling and etc.

    Is the underlined "for" necessary? I think "provide access" makes more sense.

    Thanks!

    Re: provide for or provide

    It depends to me:
    To provide for- to pay for (or other contribution) so that people can access
    To provide- to create access
