Improve Health Equity

Health equity is about leveling the playing field so that everyone has the resources they need to have the best health outcome possible. To advance health equity we will work with clients and community partners to advocate and support the improvement of health, economic and social conditions in the district of Algoma.

Together we will:

  • Develop and implement a client engagement framework by connecting with priority populations and identifying appropriate strategies to guide programs and practices that respond to population health needs
  • Enhance employee skills and competencies to advance health equity work by knowledge acquisition and application to public health practice
  • Engage community partners in a health equity strategy

Collaborate Effectively

Improving health is a shared responsibility. Through effective collaboration we will strengthen our relationship with key stakeholders and collectively impact priority areas. To improve health outcomes we will work with our partners across all sectors to influence health public policy.

  • Enhance employee knowledge of APH programs and services to improve health out-comes
  • Foster the development of new and existing partnerships to enable the identification of population health priorities
  • Effectively market and promote APH programs and services
