Public Health in Israel and Canada: A Comparative Case Study
March 25 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am
Co-sponsored by New Israel Fund of Canada and Canada International Scientific Exchange Program (CISEPO)
What do public health systems look like in Canada and Israel, two countries with universal health care but very different contexts? How do the challenges of equal access differ between the countries, and what challenges do they share? What is the role of civil society in their respective public health systems?
What does access to healthcare for marginalized populations look like in Canada versus Israel? How do the challenges of equal access present in these countries? Where do similarities and differences exist? What is the role of civil society in improving health equity in their respective public health systems?
Join us for a fascinating discussion with Ran Goldstein, Executive Director of Physicians for Human Rights-Israel, and Dr. Katherine Rouleau, Vice Chair of Global Health and Social Accountability in the Dept of Family Medicine at the University of Toronto, as they share their challenges and successes with improving healthcare equity.
Attendance at this event will be eligible for CPD credits.
