COVID-19: Impact on the Canadian public healthcare system and access to treatment

The aim of the project is to evaluate the strain that COVID-19 has put on the Canadian public healthcare system and access to treatment. The government has primarily focused on containing and overcoming the pandemic. Most research and development as well as clinical trials (unrelated to COVID-19) were put on hold to ensure that all available resources were dedicated to the development and testing of vaccines. The effect of COVID-19 on the public healthcare system and access to treatment remains unknow. The project is being proposed to understand the impact of COVID-19 on the Canadian public healthcare system and access to treatment by doing a systematic literature review. The partner organization (Novartis Pharmaceuticals Canada Inc.) will gain greater knowledge and insights on the effect of COVID-19 on the Canadian public healthcare system and access to treatment.
