The concept of precision or personalized medicine has been used widely. The concept refers to medical interventions that separate patients into different groups, whereby medical decisions, practices, policies, and programs, and/or products are tailored to the individual patient based on their predicted response or disease risk. Expanding upon this concept more broadly, a precision health approach to interventions across all pillars of health, including health promotion and public health, health care system design and interventions, and workplace health and wellness programming and policies, presents unique opportunities to enhance health and well-being for all Canadians while delivering value-for-money.

Join us as we explore the importance of addressing innovation from a horizontal and vertical perspective, and discuss how we can work together to find and implement solutions that will ultimately build a better future for Canadians by making our economy and society more dynamic and competitive.

Healthy Canada Conference 2017: Access to Affordable Medicines
Toronto, Ontario
April 26–27, 2017
Old Mill Toronto

Medicines, including pharmaceuticals and medical devices, offer not only extension of life, but often improved quality of life and functionality, allowing many Canadians the ability to become and remain active members of the work force and society. Without access to affordable, appropriate, and high-quality medicines, there can be significant impacts on individual and population health and productivity. Yet despite having one of the top health care systems in the world, access to affordable medicine continues to be a significant issue for many Canadians, particularly among our more vulnerable populations.

Join us to discuss the impact that affordable medicine could have on Canada. This event will bring together experts and stakeholders from across the country to address these issues and many others, with the goal of creating a shared vision for affordable access now, and in the future. Don`t miss this chance to explore the top issues, network with your peers, and have your say on how we can improve access to affordable medicines for all Canadians.
