The funding will support research and evidence-based knowledge exchange focused on improving health equity for Canadians, as well as enabling the public health community to take action on the social determinants of health. "The work of the National Collaborating Centre for Determinants of Health is essential in helping tackle challenges, which not long ago were not thought of as health issues," stated Ginette Petitpas Taylor, Minister of Health. "The stable funding announced today will help find new ways to improve our health care systems and to address disparities in access to health services across the country." StFX (NS)
