Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The primary purpose of this article is to demonstrate how immigrant/refugee women's access to health services is influenced by both immigration and health policies. The author argues that the wheel of health care must revolve along with the wheel of immigration. The application of health immigration policies that existed preconfederation, as well as health care interventions based on Eurocentric principles, limit minority women's accessibility to health services. An integrated dialogue between all levels of government, health care professionals, policy makers, researchers, and immigrant groups is critical to provide equitable access to health care to foster immigrant settlement in Canada's smaller communities and rural areas.
