The Alliance for Healthier Communities provides team-based health and social services, under one roof and close to home, for Ontario’s most marginalized residents. Our 106 Community Health Centres, Aboriginal Health Access Centres, Community Family Health Teams and Nurse Practitioner-Led Clinics have demonstrated our ability to help the province meet the complex challenge of ending hallway healthcare with a focus on health equity and community wellbeing.
Dear Prime Minister Trudeau, Minister Hadju, Minister Wilkinson and Minister Freeland;
There is much to be proud of in Canada’s response to the coronavirus pandemic. Our public, our healthcare system, our public health system, and our governments have worked together to make courageous and challenging decisions that prioritize health, save lives, and keep people safe.
This week, parents and caregivers in many of these communities will be asked again whether they plan to enrol their children in person or online. But for most this is not a real choice.
On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Alliance for Healthier Communities, I invite you to share with us in issuing an enthusiastic welcome to our new Chief Executive Officer, Sarah Hobbs
The Alliance for Healthier Communities Board of Directors and staff join the Hamilton Urban Core Community Health Centre (HUCCHC) team in mourning the passing of Executive Director, Denise Brooks. For more than 25 years, Denise led HUCCHC and played a crucial role in Ontario’s community health sector. She was a titan of the sector, her voice and vision will be greatly missed.
The Alliance for Healthier Communities is a network of community-governed primary health care organizations. Alliance members serve diverse communities across the province. They share a commitment to advancing health equity through the delivery of comprehensive primary health care.
