Abstract

Homelessness & Health in Canada explores, for the first time, the social, structural, and environmental factors that shape the health of homeless persons in Canada. Covering a wide range of topics from youth homelessness to end-of-life care, the authors strive to outline policy and practice recommendations to respond to the ongoing public health crisis. This book is divided into three distinct but complimentary sections. In the first section, contributors explore how homelessness affects the health of particular homeless populations, focusing on the experiences of homeless youth, immigrants, refugees and people of Aboriginal ancestry. In the second section, contributors investigate how housing and public health policy as well as programmatic responses can address various health challenges, including severe mental illness and HIV/AIDS. In the final section, contributors highlight innovative Canadian interventions that have shown great promise in the field. Together, they form a comprehensive survey of an all too important topic and serve as a blueprint for action.

Abstract

This study aims to increase awareness and interest on the pharmaceutical quality and counterfeit medicines issues in the Mekong Subregion. It provides a review of existing empirical findings regarding the state of medicine quality in the region. It also analyzes data on quality testing of drug samples from the five countries (Cambodia, China, Lao PDR, Thailand and Vietnam) in the region, in order to develop a conceptual framework for addressing the issue at the regional level, and to suggest areas for further study.
