Toward improved access to medical services for relatively underserved populations : Canadian approaches, foreign lessons Barer, M. L.; Wood, Laura Christine, 1955-; Schneider, David G.


[T]he objectives of this report are to: - provide in one document a detailed account of the historical and current initiatives in each province and territory, intended to redress geographic imbalance in the provision of medical services (Appendices l-12); - report on the approaches taken in other countries to which Canada often looks for policy inspiration (bad examples can also inspire important avoidance strategies) (Section C); - summarize the provincial/territorial experiences, in order to draw out common themes and experiences (Section B); - offer some reflections and lessons on the basis of the information and materials gathered in support of the first three objectives (Section D).
