Health Care Matters Bulletins

The Health Council of Canada is a co-sponsor of the annual Commonwealth Fund International Health Policy Survey, which queries patients, doctors and the general public on their health care experiences and select health policy themes. Results allow for comparisons among provinces and territories, as well as international comparisons, which the Health Council publishes as part of its overall analyses of survey results.
