Guiding Principles and Acknowledgements

All citizens have a right to equitable, timely and effective health care in Canada. Those responsible for health care, particularly parties who profit or benefit from the ill health of others, have a moral responsibility to support work that contributes to, or enhances the lives of people living with disease. This support must be shared by governments, non-profit and for-profit organizations, and citizens themselves. This is not only equitable, but is the best means to mitigate external influences and balance the interests of all members.
