How can we contain health costs and improve health equity? (Host: NCC for Determinants of Health)

The presenters and participants will explore:

  • evidence that demographic and economic pressures are stretching Canada’s ability to maintain its system of individual-centred health care

  • examples of research & practice supporting greater investment in the determinants of health

  • arguments for changing how we proportion health care dollars

Webinar guests:

  • Neale Smith, Centre for Clinical Epidemiology and Evaluation, University of British Columbia

  • Andrea Long, Social Determinants and Science Integration Directorate, Public Health Agency of Canada

This session will be based on the NCCDH publication, Economic arguments for shifting health dollars upstream, the PHAC publication The Direct Economic Burden of Socio-economic Health Inequalities, and the article The reallocation challenge: Containing Canadian medical care spending to invest in the social determinants of health.
