Summary

The goal of this project was to inform French and English speaking audiences about Canadian health reform proposals. The project discussed topics such as health care reforms in Stockholm, the legal context of health care reform in Quebec, the financial sustainability of Canada’s health care system, the effect of drug price controls on pharmaceutical innovation, and how the value of new drugs should be determined. While the Institute’s target audience was mainly the public in Quebec, they also disseminated their reports in English through the national media, in order to add their voice to the ongoing health care debate in the rest of the country. The project resulted in a number of publications, opinion pieces in newspapers, opinion polls, a government consultation, and lecture and debate participation.
