Quebec et Montreal, Health Sicks with Neoliberalism

Date: 
Thursday, November 23, 2000 - 19:00 - Friday, November 24, 2000 - 23:00

In collaboration with South Asia Partnership, Council of Canadians and Coalition Solidarité Santé (which includes 24 organizations)

Context:

What health problems here are they similar to those elsewhere in the world? Why WTO negotiators want so badly to include health services in the negotiations? The power that pharmaceutical companies have in their hands, is it a health hazard? If the relationship between living conditions and health are long established, why is there so little account of it in health policy, labor and environment?
