HEALTH STATUS IN CANADA 2 Speaking of health in North American countries, and even around the world, Canada is still considered a reference. But, despite this good reputation, it is also important to point out that there are, as everywhere else, problems of inequality in access to health care in this country. In this paper, it is about making a description of the programs used in this country to face this scourge. But before that, it's important for us to talk about these different inequalities, and then we'll be able to talk about the programs that the Canadian government has put in place to address its health care inequities.

This of course to reduce inequalities in health for their population. This access to health for all is based on the promotion of health care, the prevention of diseases, starting from the means of prevention, extending over the diagnoses, and finally the treatment for those already affected.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
