Host Organization:

Pharmacare in Canada: Lessons learned from abroad & Implications for the Canadian healthcare system

Register now!

All developed countries with universal healthcare systems provide universal coverage for prescription drugs – except Canada[1] where Prescription drug financing varies widely from province to province. This webinar will provide an overview of the Canadian landscape of pharmacare policy and will compare it with international policies – including: the United States, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Germany, Australia, and New Zealand. Research and discussions will span issues concerning access, system efficiency, financing and equity. Challenges facing policy makers in advancing this important issue will be addressed along with suggestions for next steps.
