July 2011: Final Copy of the Discussion Paper “Towards Reducing Health Inequities: a Health System Approach to Chronic Disease Prevention”

The Provincial Health Services Authority (PHSA) initiated the Reducing Health Inequities: A Health System Approach to Chronic Disease Prevention project to identify the actions the health system can take towards reducing health inequities. Three underserved populations were identified for the focus of this work: immigrants, refugees, and individuals transitioning into and out of the corrections system. An engagement process was undertaken with a wide range of key stakeholders from across BC representing health authorities, government, and community organizations to collectively put forward recommendations for action to reduce health inequities and improve the quality and accessibility of the health system’s policies, programs and services.
