The Social Determinants of Health in Manitoba

June 2, 2010

This book examines the social and economic conditions that contribute to health inequities in our province.  The purpose of this book is to make the social determinants of health approach better known to Manitobans.
The 19 chapters look at a range of social determinants, examine their status in Manitoba, and consider the kinds of policies that could be implemented to improve health outcomes.  In addition to contributions from local experts, we include a chapter by Dennis Raphael, the author of several publications on the social determinants of health in Canada.

Please note that a second edition of this publication is available.
