Primary Health Care: Project Summary

Primary Summary header image

Primary Health Care central to achieving health equity

In Canada and other nations, primary health care (PHC) renewal continues to be identified as a key pathway to achieve health equity, with particular implications for populations impacted by health and social inequities. For example, research shows that structural inequities and structural violence have profound negative health effects; however, little is known about how to address these issues.

  • The overarching goal of the EQUIP research program is to contribute new knowledge about innovative PHC interventions as a means to mitigate the effects of structural inequities and structural violence for populations who are most impacted by inequities, and the policy environments needed to support such programming.
