Canada is the second most favorable location on Earth in terms of equality in healthcare.
The health system can be not fun , however, a new study by an U.K.-based health-care software company indicates that Canada is the second-highest developed nation in the world to allow women to get care.
The research conducted from Radar Healthcare is in stark contrast to the warnings of Canadian doctors, politicians and experts in policy who claim the health system is in desperate need of improvement.
An opinion piece published from The Montreal Gazette points readers to an Fraser Institute study that suggests Canada is among the poorest performers in 28 countries with high incomes.
This investigation was built on the value of money, and the Radar researchers studied the legislation of 35 countries that are developed, which included the age at which individuals can get access to various types of treatment, including mammogram screening; in-vitro fertilization, transgender hormone treatment therapies; abortions, or birth controls.
“This highlights the effectiveness of allowing those in a younger age demographic autonomy over their bodies and the ability to make decisions for themselves when it comes to requesting or refusing treatment,” the report states. In Canada the minimum age for consent and the minimum age that confidentiality for doctors and patients is mandatory is 16.
In all, Canada scores high in the Global Health Inequalities Research which finds it squeezing between the U.K. and France for accessibility and equality in medical care for women. Canada has been ranked among the top in providing affordable birth control as well as access to mammograms and scans, as the report states.

Don’t let the roller coaster go just yet: Canada allows people to get transgender hormone treatment at 14 years old, which is earlier than the majority of developed countries.
“As many individuals will start the process of puberty around the age of 11 or 12, refusing transgender youth the chance to proceed with hormone therapy until they are in their late teens could cause a huge amount of distress,” the report warns.
According to the census of 2021 of more than 100,815 Canadians aged 15 or older can be classified as non-binary or transgender. New Zealand also offers hormone therapy starting at 14. In Germany it is based on the maturity level of a person and knowledge of the process, not their age as a whole according to the report.
The federal government acknowledges that the Canadian medical program “tends to typecast women and men based on longstanding traditional roles and attitudes.
” The government’s response can be described as an initiative called the National Women’s Health Research Initiative that is a five-year, $20 million program that will be launched in 2021 in order for the purpose of helping “confront persistent inequities in Canada’s health research community and health system.”
