Health Equity: What is it Anyway? This interactive workshop for regional managers and directors aims to create discussion and provide information on promoting health equity in the Winnipeg Health Region.

Registration for the course is available on Manitoba eHealth Learning Management Systems.

Health Equity: What can I do? This interactive workshop helps participants identify and implement concrete actions to promote health equity in the Winnipeg Health Region. Recognizing that health equity is a multi-faceted, complex goal with no simple solution, participants work through a comprehensive case study using available tools to assess the situation, identify barriers, and outline a plan. Registration for the course is available on Manitoba eHealth Learning Management Systems.

Health for All: Discussion with WRHA Programs, Sites & Teams (2016) These presentation slides and speaking notes provide an introduction of health equity concepts for WRHA programs and sites.

Della: Hurdles to Health (2012) This video was created by the Saskatoon Health Region. The film follows the life of a woman and her family in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan but it is a story that could easily be experienced in Winnipeg. The film provides a glimpse into the family's daily struggles as a working poor family and illustrates how poverty affects health and wellbeing.
