The Population and Public Health Program (PPH) informs and advises policy and practice on emerging and priority population health issues. We focus on prevention approaches that aim to enhance the health of British Columbians where they live, learn, work and play. We exchange and mobilize credible knowledge for action with a variety of partners.
Our activities fall into three main areas:
- knowledge generation and synthesis - creates and synthesizes knowledge for action. For example: data collection, analysis & interpretation, evidence reviews, indicators, discussion papers, and reports
- knowledge exchange - creates and supports partnerships and collaborations through facilitation and leadership. For example: forming, leading, and participating in steering committees, working groups, focus groups, dialogue, conferences, forums, and networks
- capacity building – strengthens the ability of internal and external stakeholders for individual and collective action on population health issues. For example: provide training, workshops, webinars, checklists, and other tools.
