The present health care system is in urgent need of radical overhaul. This paper presents a model health care system that offers an alternative to a white male dominated biomedical model, which maintains and reinforces social inequality and social injustice. This model is comprehensive and inclusive. It is a model that evolved from one main question about what determines the health of individuals and communities in Canada.
From the Paper:"As government officials and many members of the public are aware, I am an activist and advocate for Native rights. Through my collaboration with First Nations on unresolved land claims and health issues, I am firmly convinced that Native health and the health of other minority groups will not improve until the underlying conditions for these groups are changed."
