The Chief Public Health Officer of Canada report on the state of public health in Canada 2023
October 30, 2023 | 12:00 - 13:00 (ET)
The increasing frequency and severity of emergencies in Canada has prompted discussion across sectors on how best to prevent, prepare for, respond to, and recover from emergencies. The 2023 CPHO Annual Report, Creating the Conditions for Resilient Communities: A Public Health Approach to Emergencies, highlights the public health role in all phases of the emergency management continuum, given its focus on addressing inequities and supporting the conditions for good health and well-being. Health promotion approaches, founded on intersectoral action on the social determinants of health and strengthening collective action at the community level, can guide the public health response. This virtual discussion will illustrate tangible actions that have brought health promotion into emergency management in Canada with the goal of promoting future collaborative action.
