Community-Based Perspectives on the Political Economy of Immigrant Health: A Qualitative Study

"This research explores community-based perspectives on the political economy of immigrant health. It seeks to examine and clarify the relationship between three bodies of knowledge: the political economy perspective on population health; the academic public health literature on the health of immigrant populations in Canada; and professional knowledge related to the provision of health and social services to immigrant communities at the level of Community Health Centres in the City of Toronto."
