Why Equity Matters, A new report by RESULTS Canada

In August 2016 RESULTS Canada took three Members of Parliament on a parliamentary delegation to Indonesia in order to give them an opportunity to see firsthand the impact of Canadian aid on improving access to health for the poorest and most vulnerable. During four days of site visits and meetings, the delegation was able to observe not only the barriers that many face in accessing health in Indonesia but also the role that Canada can play in promoting impactful development policy in middle income countries such as Indonesia.
