Examines the burden of illness (overall health and well-being) experienced by Ontarians, and how it differs by sex, socioeconomic status, ethnicity and geography. By painting a picture of health inequities in the province, opportunities for improvement are identified and objective evidence is presented to inform priority setting and to provide a baseline from which to measure progress.

The POWER Study (Project for an Ontario Women's Health Evidence-based Report) is producing a comprehensive Women's Health Report to serve as an evidence-based tool for policy makers, providers and consumers in their efforts to improve health and reduce health inequities among the women and men of Ontario.
