13. Better Evidence to Improve Women’s Health with Gender and Health Statistics: Health Indicator Frameworks  
 Add to Shortlist | View Shortlist
REGION:  NATIONAL
Resource Type: Report
TOPIC(S): GENERAL ANALYSES
Health indicator frameworks provide a purposeful and systematic means to conceptualize health-influencing factors and their relationships to health status (or outcomes). Frameworks are shaped by current health policy priorities and availability of useable data, but also should reflect factors that have meaning in people’s lives, and point to action that can be taken to improve health (Jackson and Willson 2005). This paper describes frameworks and processes to bring sensitivity to both sex (biology and physiology) and gender (personal and societal roles, responsibilities, access to resources and power) to indicators of health and health determinants. It discusses how health indicator frameworks can be used to organize, record and monitor health information, incorporate gender equity considerations and thus provide evidence of health inequities between and among women and men, and indicate where interventions can improve health. There is an emphasis in this paper on women’s health because women’s health is disproportionately poor, and there is disproportionately poor evidence about women’s health and health determinants.

14. Social Determinants of Health: The Canadian Facts  
 Add to Shortlist | View Shortlist
REGION:  NATIONAL
Resource Type: Report
TOPIC(S): GENERAL ANALYSES
The primary factors that shape the health of Canadians are not medical treatments or lifestyle choices but rather the living conditions they experience. These conditions have come to be known as the social determinants of health. This information – based on decades of research and hundreds of studies in Canada and elsewhere – is unfamiliar to most Canadians.

Canadians are largely unaware that our health is shaped by how income and wealth is distributed, whether or not we are employed and if so, the working conditions we experience. Our health is also determined by the health and social services we receive, and our ability to obtain quality education, food and housing, among other factors. And contrary to the assumption that Canadians have personal control over these factors, in most cases these living conditions are – for better or worse – imposed upon us by the quality of the communities, housing situations, work settings, health and social service agencies, and educational institutions with which we interact.

This report presents information on 14 social determinants of health and why they are important, how Canada is addressing them, and what can be done to improve their quality.

The resulting study population of mature singles comprises just over 1,600 respondents representing about 526,000 women aged 29 to 54 and almost 621,000 men aged 31 to 54. Results are sex-disaggregated.

Resource Type: Report
TOPIC(S): GENERAL ANALYSES
In Voices from the Margins: Experiences of Street-Involved Youth in Winnipeg we sought to hear the voices of street-involved youth. We wanted to give them a forum through which to tell their stories. We wanted to know: How they came to be involved with the street? What their lives were like at that point in time? What things made life on the street easier or harder? What might facilitate their transition off the street and keep them off? A key feature of this study is that it was conducted from the perspective of street experienced youth. We interviewed twelve young people who had been involved with the street at some point in their lives. Their stories highlight their personal struggles to survive and transcend the harsh realities of the street. The data for this study come from their narratives about their experiences. In addition, four former street youth served as research interns who assisted in the development of the research project and with interviewing.
