That the Government of Canada, in negotiating a new Health Care Accord, ensure that the accord honours the principles of the Canada Health Act, and includes an accountability framework. The accord’s areas of focus should include:
a national prescription drug program;
enhanced investments in home care;
a mental health strategy; and
investments in information technologies that support improved management and accountability measures.
This does not compel the government to do anything, but is only a recommendation from the finance committee. However that it is the number 1 out of 81 recommendations and hundreds more submissions is a great indicator of how far we have come.
