Health Equity Report from Health Quality Ontario

Front cover of the health equity report: Income and Health
Income and Health shows how income is associated with health risks, health care and health outcomes among people in Ontario. With indicators covering everything from the smoking rate to prescription medication insurance to life expectancy, the report looks at variation between the poorest people in Ontario and the richest, across five income levels.

Throughout the report, people from across the province share their personal stories on how their income relates to their health and the health care they receive.

As Health Quality Ontario’s first report completely devoted to health equity, we hope to shed light on health inequities and help break down the barriers to better quality health care and improved outcomes for everyone living in Ontario.
