Health Inequities in Renfrew County and District Report
All people in Renfrew County and District should have the opportunity to be as healthy as possible. But health is influenced by a variety of factors, ranging from genetics and behaviours to the physical, social, and economic environments in which we live.
Some of us live less healthy and shorter lives because we are affected by factors such as low income, less education, poor housing, less access to healthy food, and/or other disadvantages.
When differences in health are systematic, avoidable and unfair, they are called health inequities. There are many things that local, provincial and national organizations can do together to reduce health inequities, improving the chances that everyone can achieve lasting good health.
