Our communities priorities

Since deciding to offer as a candidate, I thought I should learn more about the communities in other areas. I have been looking over the needs assessments and the most recent report against those priorities.  I found both the data on the areas, the priorities established and the results achieved very interesting. Below I have listed the priorities for each area and hyperlinked the document with most recent results. (below the table)

Before starting to look at the differences in the communities in the Horizon Health network, it was important to recognize  the 12 factors that they consider  when determining  what influences our health., namely:

  • Income and Social Status
  • Social Support Networks
  • Education and Literacy
  • Employment and Working Conditions
  • Social Environment
  • Physical Environment
  • Personal Health Practices and Coping Skills
  • Healthy Child Development
  • Biology and Genetic Endowment
  • Health Services
  • Gender
  • Culture

The Public Agency of Canada Social Determinants of Health are: 10% Health Services, 40% Health Behaviours , 10% Physical Environment and 40% Social & Economic Health Factors.
