The Alliance for Healthier Communities is the voice of community-governed primary health care in Ontario. Our vision is the best possible health and wellbeing for everyone. Members of the Alliance for Healthier Communities provide team-based health and social services, under one roof and close to home, for Ontario’s most vulnerable residents. Our 106 members include Community Health Centres, Aboriginal Health Access Centres, Community Family Health Teams and Nurse Practitioner-Led Clinics who together serve approximately 5 per cent of the Ontario population.
The Alliance for Healthier Communities shares the government’s interest in strengthening Ontario's health care system and promoting a patient-centred approach. We propose a number of amendments to Bill 74, The People’s Health Care Act, which would help advance a health system that recognizes the myriad of factors that promote health and wellbeing beyond care and treatment.
