The NCCHPP conducted an analysis of the Canadian media from 2008 for coverage of news or information on health inequalities. We have produced a full report and a summary version.
2008 was a banner year for the study and discussion of health inequalities in public health circles in Canada and elsewhere. In anticipation of the release of the final report of the World Health Organization’s (WHO’s) Commission on the Social Determinants of Health (WHO, 2008), a number of public health meetings and publications focused on the issue of health inequalities.
In order to ascertain whether the release of several public health reports and the publicizing of conferences and events would generate significant press coverage, the NCCHPP commissioned the Caisse Chartier Press Analysis Laboratory at the Université du Québec à Montréal to find out.
A number of interesting things emerged from the analysis, and the full report is offered here.
