When it comes to health care, are Canadians getting value for money? Health care now accounts for nearly 40% of provincial budgets.

Pressure continues for governments to spend more at a time when families tighten their belts and the global economic uncertainty deepens. We all need to be assured of the value we receive when health care continues to command such a large share of Canadas resources. Last year, we spent $172 billion on health care.

Its time to ask: Are we funding the right things? Are we getting the best value for the money we already spend? Are we investing in the programs and services that will yield the greatest health improvements for Canadians? We must figure out a way to make our money go further without compromising the quality of care Canadians have come to expect and need.

The Health Council of Canada has launched a forum designed to engage Canadians in a national dialogue about value for money, to open a conversation about how to get the biggest bang for the buck in health care.
