THE CASE FOR BASIC INCOME AND HEALTH
The World Health Organization states that income is the major social determinant of health. Yet one in seven Canadians (4.9 million) currently lives in poverty, with even more living in economic precarity.
The result of the work on the Case for Basic Income for Health will be used to advocate decision-makers that basic income can address many of the social determinants of health.
