Canada and the United States: Unidentical Twins - 10/28 Daypass - Beyond Fear and Loathing: Comparing the US and Canadian Health Systems
Focusing on the ways in which both the US and Canadian health systems have been misrepresented in both countries, Marchildon describes the essential features of each system, explaining where they differ and where they are surprisingly similar. He will examine the respective strengths and weaknesses of each health system and the prospects for major change and, most importantly, will highlight what he thinks each country could actually learn from the other. Gregory P. Marchildon is the Ontario Research Chair in Health Policy and System Design at the Institute of Health Policy, Management and Evaluation at the University of Toronto. He is also Director of the North American Observatory on Health Systems and Policies and cross-appointed to the Munk School of Global Affairs and Public Policy at the University of Toronto. He has written numerous articles and books on comparative health systems, the history of environmental policy and health policy, federalism, and the evolution of universal health coverage in Canada.
