The Wellesley Institute researches and analyzes the policy changes needed to address the social determinants of health that underlie pervasive and damaging health inequities. These changes will need to be driven by broad community-based innovation, social movements and political pressure. But acting to ensure equitable access to high-quality health care for all and improving resources and services for the most health disadvantaged populations can also make a huge difference. I spoke to a forum of medical and other health students at the University of Toronto on key equity levers and mechanisms within health care. It’s always a great pleasure to work with these leaders of tomorrow who will be driving action on equity within the health care system.
