“This 2nd Edition of the Social Determinants of Health in Manitoba is a timely reminder that the health of people is determined more by economic and social inequality than by germs and diseases. In keeping with the 1st Edition, this is an excellent collection of papers by experts in the field.” — John Loxley, Professor of Economics, University of Manitoba
This book examines the social and economic conditions that contribute to health inequities in our province, and aims to make the social determinants of health approach better known to Manitobans. The book looks at a range of social determinants, examines their status in Manitoba, and considers the kinds of policies that could be implemented to improve health outcomes.
