Downtown Prince George Health Services Review - 2017

Chief Medical Health Officers Report: Child Health - 2016

Essential to lifelong wellness for every person in Northern BC is a healthy pregnancy and a healthy childhood. Everyone deserves a good start. This report attempts to explain some of the factors that may serve to compromise or protect children’s health in the North.

Based on the findings from the child health report, the Northern Health board will launch its seventh community consultation on this topic. The consultation process will include online engagement through surveys, public sessions, focus groups, youth groups, and more. The plans for the public consultation are currently being finalized and will be shared in the near future. We expect the consultation process to begin in May.

Community Consultation: "Let's Talk About Primary Health Care" - 2009

In fall 2009, Northern Health held public meetings on primary health care across northern BC (18 communities) so that Northerners could provide their input on activities and services that support good health. Almost a thousand people in participated.

Focus Groups: Men's Health - 2011

This was part of a conversation on men’s health sparked by the report "Where are the Men? Chief Medical Health Officer’s Report on the Health & Wellbeing of Men and Boys in Northern BC".

As noted in Where are the Men?, northern men don't live as long as those in BC's lower mainland. As well, men die earlier than women of virtually all causes. The 2011 men's health focus groups targeted First Nations, transportation, oil/gas/forestry/mining, and more.
