The diversity of Alberta’s population will continue to increase significantly during the next two decades.
Evidence shows that some of the most vulnerable segments of diverse populations – Indigenous, immigrants, refugees, specific visible minorities, French speaking Albertans, and people experiencing homelessness – are disproportionately impacted by chronic disease.
Alberta Health Services and other healthcare organizations are faced with the challenge of caring for patients who experience poorer health and access barriers to health services due to a number of social determinants.
Targeted approaches are being developed and implemented that respond to the local and unique needs of diverse and vulnerable communities in Alberta.
