About Vancouver Island Community Health Networks
Community health networks bring together people from wide-ranging backgrounds, roles and perspectives to take action on issues that impact health and well-being in their communities. The focus is on complex issues.
Why does it matter?
A Community Health Network in the Strathcona region provides a mechanism for citizens working and living in the regional district to come together and speak with a collective voice on health issues and share ideas and resources to build healthier communities. The Network aims to improve health and well being and focus on the social determinants of health.
