Health Inequalities in Canada: Better decisions from existing data

At the World Health Assembly in 2012, Canada endorsed the Rio Political Declaration on the Social Determinants of Health, pledging to strengthen monitoring and reporting on health inequalities. Following this, the Public Health Agency of Canada, Statistics Canada, and the Canadian Institute for Health Information (and others) have collaboratively undertaken the work of the Pan-Canadian Health Inequalities Reporting Initiative by creating a data resource. Over the past 18 months, the Manitoba/Saskatchewan Region of the Public Health Agency of Canada has been conducting a series of information sessions for potential users of the Health Inequalities Data Tool, to raise awareness of the available data, the methodology, and the supporting resources.

In this presentation, attendees will:

-Strengthen knowledge and action on health inequalities in Canada through improved data infrastructure and reporting.
-Receive a high-level overview of the impetus for the development of this initiative, with links to global goals.
-Be introduced to and have the opportunity to use the Data Tool, which will increase their understanding of the scope and capacity of the tool.
-Work through examples of the types of policy research questions or queries that can be answered.
