Which Medications Should we Keep Taking? Essential Medications in Canada

A talk by Nav Persaud (BSc 2002 UC)

Staff Physician, St. Michael's Hospital 

Assistant Professor, Department of Family and Community Medicine, U of T

Millions of Canadians cannot afford medications and, at the same time, billions of dollars are wasted on medicines each year in Canada. In this informal talk, Nav Persaud will discuss how a solution from the World Health Organization could solve both problems. The essential medicines concept has the potential to change the way medications are taken in Canada and around the world.
