The Politics of Health

Submitted by Danyaal Raza on May 19, 2012 - 16:18

As the newest member of the Open Medicine blog team, you can expect posts from me that focus on the intersection of health and elected politics. If I had started posting some months ago, you might have seen stories on the 2014 health accord, the health scandals in Alberta/defection of Raj Sherman and the recent ICES report on primary health care reform in Ontario. While I can't always promise to strike an impartial tone, you can look forward to posts that seek clarity in often messy situations.

When not blogging for Open Medicine or Tweeting via @DanyaalRaza, you can find me in the midst of a Family Medicine Global Health & Vulnerable Populations Fellowship at the University of Toronto. My first set of posts will focus on this area - specifically, proposed reform to refugee health care in Canada.

I look forward to hearing your thoughts on each post, and the opportunity to respond to each of your posted comments.

Happy reading,
