• My breasts and uterus count too!

    A video to raise awareness about the lack of access to specific health care for women living with disabilities.

    Women testify about the lack of adapted equipment for mammograms and ultrasounds, the lack of knowledge about parenthood among people with disabilities, and the lack of knowledge of (non-specialized) health care personnel about people with spinal cord injuries. They also denounce the condescension and ignorance of the medical profession towards their realities as women with disabilities.

  • New Program: Costs of Illness

    Despite our public healthcare system, a serious illness almost always brings unexpected costs to individuals and families. We created a bilingual website that brings users through the range of financial impacts of a serious illness and how they can protect themselves depending on their situation.

    This project is a partnership with Breast Cancer Action Quebec, Proche Aidance Quebec, Relais-Femme, CIAFT and ACEF Rive-Sud - Funded by l'Autorité des marchés financiers
