Addressing Stigma: Towards a More Inclusive Health System
This report provides a snapshot of key public health trends in Canada and focuses on the impact of stigma and actions to address it across health systems.
Canadians continue to be among the healthiest people in the world. However, persistent health inequities prevent many people from being able to achieve their full potential. Often these differences can only be explained by how people are treated.
The report offers an action framework outlining how we – as individuals, institutions and as a population – can take steps to address stigma to build an inclusive health system.
