Health Policy Conference

PharmaWhere? Exploring the Future of Drug Coverage in Canada

March 5, 2024 | UBC Vancouver Campus or Virtual

The 36th annual CHSPR health policy conference explored the future of drug coverage in Canada at a time of significant policy development. As millions of Canadians cannot afford their prescription drugs, the federal government is in the process of developing new legislation that will enable a more coordinated approach to pharmacare. The conference surveyed the history and future of drug coverage, including vital topics such as equity in access to medicines, the history of reform efforts, and the emerging use of real-world evidence. The event was offered in hybrid format.

CHSPR’s long-standing conference promotes discussion between policy-makers, academics, providers, trainees, patients and national organizations on timely issues shaping health systems in Canada. The 2024 conference brought together participants from diverse groups and from across the country.
