Primary Care for Everyone
An Urgent To-Do List for Reform
Released: Wednesday March 29, 2023
Three years of coping with COVID-19 has given Canadians a crash course in what’s right and wrong with their health-care system, particularly under stress. There is now an urgent opportunity to leverage that experience, together with existing knowledge about reforms needed in several fundamental areas, to secure the future of Canadian health care.
PPF has assembled a group of reform-minded Canadians with deep roots in health care. Practitioners, administrators, and policy, academic and technology leaders have come together in a shared determination to provide provincial and federal governments with up-to-the-minute policy advice as the current health-care crisis unfolds. This year-long project will include an examination of primary care, data and digital technology, care and wellness of older people, and mental health services.
Our panel of experts includes:
The group’s first report, called Taking Back Health Care: How to Accelerate People-Centred Reform Now, was published in January, 2023. An open letter to Canadians was published the same month, while Primary Care for Everyone was published in March, 2023. Next up: Data and Digital Technology.
