On February 4, GSL Associate Director Patrick Fafard was interviewed by Radio-Canada about the restructuring of Ontario’s health services system. He addressed current debates about the risk of privatization, the potential dissolution of local health integration networks and creation of an amalgamated central health agency, and the near-term costs that overhauling the system could have for patients. Fafard highlighted the need for greater clarity in debates about health system restructuring in order to distinguish between the privatization of health care financing and the privatization of health care service delivery.

The segment, which is titled ‘Les risques d’une possible privatisation des services de santé en Ontario’, is available in French here.
