BCCDC collaborated with the National Collaborating Centres for Environmental Health (NCCEH) and Determinants of Health (NCCDH) to produce a Framework and accompanying User Guide to help environmental public health practitioners identify potential actions on the social determinants of health and health equity. Practitioners can use these two tools to reflect on their current practice and identify practical actions for use in their day-to-day work or broader program planning.
The Framework outlines 10 considerations to help practitioners identify how equity work relates to their role and how they can begin to take action. It can be used by staff with any degree of knowledge or experience related to health equity. The User Guide highlights potential points of influence for frontline staff, managers, and educators. Together, these tools support reflective practice, collaboration, and action toward equity-integrated environmental public health.
