NOAHE Rounds III Session 3: The Health and Financial Impacts of a Sugary Drink Tax Across Different Income Groups in Canada

Overconsumption of sugar-sweetened beverages (SSBs) contributes to obesity and numerous related diseases, including heart disease, strokes, cancers, and type 2 diabetes. It also increases healthcare costs. Sugary drink taxes have been implemented in several countries to curb sugar intake. However, there is a concern that sugary drink taxes are regressive. This session is to present a study that assessed the impact of a sugary drink tax on health and financial inequality across different income groups in Canada. This study built upon an existing Canadian sugary drink tax model by Jones et al. and the income-specific parameters modelled included: population demographics; cross- and own-price elasticities; mean BMI; sugary drink consumption; mortality; and disease epidemiology. In this presentation, methods, the findings and implications will be discussed.
