About Us

Our vision is a high quality health care system designed by an informed population.

Canadians want to know more about the health care system that they care about, yet there are currently few places to go for factual, easy-to-understand information about the health care system. Healthy Debate fills this gap by providing comprehensive, unbiased information.

Our mission is to provide accurate, accessible information about health care to the public, practitioners, journalists, students, managers and policy makers; to be a forum for thoughtful deliberation about  Canada’s health care systems; and to increase the frequency with which health system leaders use evidence and informed public input when making policy and management decisions.

In our feature Articles, we provide a balanced, evidence-based look into health care issues. Our features shed light on complicated health system practices; question national, provincal/territorial or hospital-level policies; or tackle common misconceptions around everyday health concerns. Our articles are written by our on-staff journalists and edited by the health care leaders from our Editorial Board. Our coverage is informed by the Healthy Debate Citizens’ Advisory Council.

We also publish weekly Opinions, Personal Health Navigator columns, Faces of Health Care interviews and The Rounds Table Podcast. Please follow the links to learn more.
