Framing the Core: Health Inequalities and Poverty in Saskatoon's Low-Income Neighbourhoods

This document presents a description of the five key frames used respectively by Quint Development Corporation and the Saskatoon Health Region in discussions of the communities they serve. These frames orient their definitions of the populations they serve, the key problems and their determinants as they see them as well as the main approaches to resolving them.

The document proposes that an awareness of the frames used by not-for-profits and public health actors can contribute to more successful partnerships to tackle issues of common interest.
