Investing in Health Care - Delivering Pharmacare
September 24, 2019
We’re incredibly lucky to live in a country with universal healthcare. But, there’s still room for improvement — our system doesn’t cover all the things we need today. And we’re going to change that.
No matter where you live, who you are, or what you do, you should be able to get the care you need to be healthy.
And that starts with making sure you have access to the health care you need, when you need it.
That’s why we’re going to make sure you can find a family doctor or primary care team no matter where you live. And if you need care at home, we’re going to continue to improve access to home care and palliative care.
We’re also going to improve access to mental health services. Too many people haven’t been able to get the help they need because the wait was too long or it cost too much, and that’s simply unacceptable.
And whether you need insulin or an inhaler, we’re going to make sure everyone can afford the medications they need by taking the next steps to implement national pharmacare.
You shouldn’t have to make tough choices when it comes to accessing mental health support or the prescription drugs you need – we’re going to make sure you don’t have to.
