Developing a Research Program on the Process and Impact of Implementing Core Public Health Functions in BC

To contribute to public health system renewal, the BC Ministry of Health has developed a Framework for Core Functions in Public Health. The Core Functions identify the key public heath services that health authorities will provide and that will strengthen the link between public health, primary health care and chronic disease management in BC. This award supports the creation of a multidisciplinary team to establish research priorities for public health in BC as they relate to the framework, and to develop a research program on the implementation and outcomes of the core functions.
