About Us

Healthy People in a Health Environment – Healthy Public Policy

The Saskatchewan Health Coalition was established in 1981. We have a broad-based membership representing diverse organizations and individuals.

We lobby governments, organize public meetings throughout the province, and otherwise promote a better health care system.

We strongly support the maintenance of national standards as set out in the Canada Health Act.

We are proudly affiliated with the Canadian Health Coalition.

The Saskatchewan Health Coalition supports a publicly funded health care system built upon:

– An integrated approach to care

– Appropriate, cost effective, evidence based programs and services

-Recognition that social and economic factors have a profound impact on well-being

-Health education and prevention programs

-Citizens and patient involvement

-Community based planning and delivery

-Continuous evaluation and improvement

-Effective and human provisions for adjustment of the labour force

-Continuing education for health workers

-Sufficient public funding
