When governments invite the public to participate in consultations to reform health care and other policies, they generally represent themselves as calling upon citizens to engage in a social, but apolitical process. This study questions this representation by rethinking how policy is formulated and enacted and by rethinking how Aboriginal women are regarded when they engage in the health care system.

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.
