Dr. Gary Bloch has a simple cure for the health problems ailing low-income British Columbians: increase their income. That’s the message that Dr. Bloch, a family physician with St. Michael’s Hospital in Toronto, and chair of the Ontario College of Family Physicians’ Committee on Poverty and Health, will bring to Vancouver on September 23rd. The impacts of poverty on health directly affect 15% of the population of British Columbia, with the poorest 20% having a 60% greater rate of two or more chronic health conditions, when compared to the richest 20%. However, inequality also negatively affects the health of everyone through the breakdown of social cohesion.
