1 in 10 Canadians are unable to afford prescribed medications
Canada is the only country in the world with a universal public health care system that doesn’t include access to prescription medication. We need a national drug plan that is public, universal and safe, providing everyone with the medications they need.
Since 1979, the Canadian Health Coalition advocates for the preservation and improvement of universal public health care across Canada.
We're a coalition of national organizations representing nurses, health care workers, seniors, churches, social justice organizations, women, and trade unions, as well as affiliated coalitions in 9 provinces and 1 territory.
