We are all committed to ensuring families get the best health care where and when they need it, while ensuring all Ontarians get better value for their health dollars. What role does equity play in planning for positive policy change?

Please join us in Toronto on May 28th, 2012 for the full day HEIA Equity Forum which will bring together diverse, cross-sectoral stakeholders for a dialogue about ways we can reduce health inequities by improving quality through system-level innovation to reduce health inequities.
