Multimedia from this Release

Summary

Canada prides itself on its universal healthcare system, however the stark reality is that millions of Canadians have limited or no access to healthcare. They are the poor and homeless, street youth, victims of domestic violence, Aboriginals, and those living with mental illness and battling addictions. Some live in remote northern areas, others in small towns and in our busiest urban streets.

This exhibition is part of AstraZeneca Canada’s corporate citizenship initiative called Frontline Health, which supports dedicated health professionals who work with Canada’s most vulnerable populations. It’s a program intended to highlight a significant healthcare issue and address a great unmet need across Canada.
