The measure of a society is found in how they treat their weakest and most helpless citizens ― Jimmy Carter (39th U.S. President)
HPHR’s 20th edition addresses the social determinants driving disparate rates of disease among disenfranchised populations. With insight into a range of populations including ethnic minorities, transient populations, Canada’s indigenous population, European refugees and the homeless, this edition exhibits the concerns of vulnerable populations who are often left on the fringes and unaffected by mainstream healthcare policies. Spotlighted in the hopes that policy responses become more multisectoral, this edition highlights the need to do things differently.
