Manitoba Centre for Health Policy

Health regions outside Winnipeg do not produce nearly as much data, but the Manitoba Centre for Health Policy (MCHP), has several online publications that provide useful data.

The Manitoba Centre for Health Policy (MCHP) is a research unit at the University of Manitoba's Rady Faculty of Medicine. MCHP does research on the health of Manitobans. Its primary focus is the question, What makes people healthy? Many factors affect health, such as health care, health programs and policies, income, education, employment, and social circumstances. MCHP is sorting out the contribution of these factors.

MCHP has published many reports and made them available on the web. The list of reports can be browsed by topic on MCHP's "Publications and Presentations" page. All are focused on specialized health policy issues. These publications contain a wealth of statistical data for Manitoba Health Regions, the following sections will be of interest:
