Healthy Communities Initiative

Health begins where we Live, Work, Learn and Play.

Local governments are leaders in implementing policies and programs that promote healthier behaviours in their communities. Improving the health and well-being of our citizens requires sustained collaboration and partnership between Interior Health (IH), local governments, Ministry of Health, Provincial Health Services Authority and community and provincial organizations.

The IH Healthy Communities Initiative plans to use partnership, commitment and innovation to affect system change to reduce the risk factors associated with chronic disease and increase the opportunity for improved health outcomes for citizens.
