Examining disparities in cancer control: A system performance report
February 1, 2014
Read this 2014 report about disparities based on earnings, immigration status and where people live
This report examines important disparities in cancer care and outcomes received by Canadians based on how much they earn, where they live and if they are recent immigrants or Canadian-born. Overall, the report shows that people from the poorest urban neighbourhoods are less likely to survive cancer compared with urban residents from the richest neighbourhoods, and that this might be partly explained by inequities in access to diagnostic and treatment services.
