The author reflects on the efforts of Canadian government medical sector to address the issues on global poverty and human development. He believes that the action taken by the administration of Stephen Harper, Canada's prime minister, to help poor countries such as providing financial help is not enough and improperly managed. He suggests that Canada and Canadian doctors should take all steps necessary to make the country a leader in global health and poverty reduction.
