Hamilton Doctors are disappointed in the lack of support for Physicians providing necessary health care to those experiencing homelessness in the Hamilton community. Harm reduction is central to the mission of public health: minimizing the risks and harms to those in our community, even if all risk cannot be eliminated. The COVID – 19 pandemic has highlighted existing health inequalities in our community. Now, more than ever, we must strive towards providing equal access to care for all Hamiltonians. Advocacy is central to the profession of medicine. The Hamilton Academy of Medicine applauds Dr. Jill Wiwcharuk for her tireless work advocating for our City’s most vulnerable populations. We call on the City of Hamilton to work with Dr. Wiwcharuk and her colleagues to find solutions for improving the health and safety of those affected by homelessness. Our community must come together to create a sustainable system that protects all Hamiltonians, especially in times of crisis.
