Event Details

We are excited to annouce that to mark UN International Day of Older Persons on October 1, 2015, we will be hosting a discussion on national pharmacare policy.

Introduction: Dr. Mary Ann Murphy - CARP Okanagan

Feature speaker: Dr. Steve Morgan from the School of Population and Public Health - University of British Columbia.

"Pharmacare: Making Necessary Care Affordable for all Canadians"

Prescription drugs are so important in modern healthcare that the World Health Organization has declared that all countries are obligated to ensure universal access to them. Despite repeated calls for action, Canada has not yet fulfilled this obligation. Canadians deserve universal and equitable access to necessary medicines, regardless of their age, income, or province of residence. Drawing on 20 years of research on the topic, this presentation will explain how universal, comprehensive, public “Pharmacare” — working in conjunction with our universal “Medicare” system — is the best way to ensure that all Canadians have equitable access to necessary medicines at an affordable cost to patients and society as a whole.


*** This special presentation was co-sponsored by Interior Savings Credit Union.
