  • APPLICATION OF A HEALTH EQUITY LENS IN BC’S PUBLIC HEALTH SYSTEMS AND SERVICES

    The public health system has a critical role in reducing health inequities.  In British Columbia, the public health renewal efforts presented a timely opportunity for the integration and application of an equity lens in public health. This initiative, led by the Equity Lens in Public Health Research Program (ELPH) at the University of Victoria, is an examination of how to apply an equity lens in public health and the contribution of public health to reducing health inequities. The goal is to support a strong public health system with health care providers equipped with the knowledge, skills, tools and resources to promote health equity.
