The authors reflect on the issue concerning the decline in spending allocated by the Canadian government for the health care industry for 2009. They argue that the move will offer challenges to the industry in the provision of quality care to patients and communities. The authors contend that health associations and professionals should lobby on increasing investment for health research and promote the significant role played by health in achieving economic development.
