The Manitoba Poverty Tool

Manitoba Poverty ToolIncome is a powerful determinant of health. Family physicians and other care providers have key roles to play in addressing poverty as a risk to their patients' health, due to their close relationships with their patients and their ability to access resources to improve patients' health.

The tools on this website have been adapted for use in Manitoba by a group of interested physicians and health care providers and to assist primary care providers and teams to integrate this approach into their practice.
