Dr. Alan Katz says the evidence is clear: health care on Manitoba’s First Nations is falling short.
Primary health care reform has been underway in Canada for more than 20 years. Strides are being made to strengthen the system overall, but there’s been little effect on reserves, the U of M professor says.
“Most of the work being done is intended for urban populations,” says Katz. And that leaves First Nations communities out in the cold.
