Health Equity

Equity in Action

Reducing health inequities will help protect a sustainable, high quality health care system for everyone and improve Winnipeg’s reputation as a desirable place to live, invest and visit. There are many examples of effective action underway in Winnipeg. Many organizations and individuals are working on creating more equitable conditions for health in many sectors, many of whom have been dedicated to this important work for years. This includes many individual Winnipeggers who despite significant barriers, strive every day to make a better life for themselves, their families and their communities. Small actions in many areas building over time can make a difference if we all ask “what more could we do?”

The following are links to a few examples of initiatives or stories that capture the essence of existing heath equity action in our region.  Over time, more stories will be added to highlight our efforts towards “Health for All”.
