Brought to life through a mix of expertise and story, this book appeals beyond political lines to address our common values, arguing that health is a measure of our success as a society. Drawing on his experiences as a family physician in the inner city of Saskatoon, in rural Saskatchewan, and in Mozambique, Dr. Meili argues that health delivery too often focuses on treatment of immediate causes and ignores more fundamental conditions that lead to poor health. Far more than the actions of healthcare providers, it is the social determinants of health--income, education, employment, housing, the wider environment, and social supports--that make the greatest difference. This updated edition describes the positive steps that have been taken since the first edition was published in 2012. It includes: new chapters on poverty, food security, and climate change; new content in every chapter, with expanded discussions on basic income, poverty reduction strategies, innovative housing polices, carbon pricing, and the role of health professionals in working for health equity; new accounts by patients about their experiences in the health care system. This edition breaks important ground, showing us how a focus on health can change Canadian politics for the better.\"--<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:exampleOfWork<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/id\/1357843127<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:genre<\/a> \"Electronic books<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:inLanguage<\/a> \"en<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:isSimilarTo<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/oclc\/1000028301<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:name<\/a> \"A healthy society : how a focus on health can revive Canadian democracy<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:productID<\/a> \"1012844511<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <https:\/\/login.proxy.bib.uottawa.ca\/login?url=http:\/\/books.scholarsportal.info\/viewdoc.html?id=\/ebooks\/ebooks3\/upress\/2018-01-18\/1\/9780774880275<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <http:\/\/proxy.library.carleton.ca\/login?url=http:\/\/books.scholarsportal.info\/viewdoc.html?id=\/ebooks\/ebooks3\/upress\/2018-01-18\/1\/9780774880275<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <http:\/\/www.deslibris.ca\/ID\/454196<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <https:\/\/ezproxy.kpu.ca:2443\/login?url=http:\/\/search.ebscohost.com\/login.aspx?direct=true&scope=site&db=nlebk&db=nlabk&AN=1635782<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <http:\/\/lib.myilibrary.com?id=1050345<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:workExample<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/isbn\/9780774880275<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:workExample<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/isbn\/9780774880282<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:workExample<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/isbn\/9780774880299<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nwdrs:describedby<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/title\/-\/oclc\/1012844511<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0.\n\n\n<\/div>\n\n
