CPHA Canvax

Each year, the Chief Public Health Officer of Canada (CPHO) writes a report on the state of public health in Canada. These reports are intended to highlight important public health issues, spark discussion, and support action to improve population health and the conditions of health. This year's annual report explores the inequitable health impacts of emergencies. It highlights opportunities for public health to contribute to emergency management through the essential public health functions, particularly health promotion approaches that can support equity and resilience. A key objective of this report is to ensure better health security by including critical health promotion capabilities and capacities in emergency management plans and activities. If systematically integrated, health promotion can help communities to be more resilient, increase social connections and cohesion, and foster trust amongst communities, response partners, and decision makers.
