PUBLIC HEALTH PROGRAM - VOTE 1406

The goal of the Public Health Program is to protect and enhance health, prevent the onset of disease and premature death of Ontarians at all stages of life. This Program reflects the direction to focus health care resources on preventive health services. The Public Health Program sets standards and guidelines, and provides funding to Ontario's boards of health. The Program includes the Office of the Chief Medical Officer of Health, who has independent powers and a responsibility to report annually on the state of public health to the Legislative Assembly of Ontario. In this regard, the mandate of Public Health includes the entire spectrum of infectious diseases, chronic diseases and injury prevention, healthy child development, family and community health, and environmental health - all with a focus on the underlying determinants of health and illness.
