This article looks at the international context for health reform in Canada.  The author explores how Canada has developed some unique reform strategies and adapted others to suit our particular circumstances. She argues that this is particularly the case in the areas of health promotion and gender-based analysis. But foreign influences and external pressures have seldom been absent, although the extent and nature of these have changed significantly over the years.
