Vision to achieve health equity
The Sudbury & District Health Unit has an extensive vision to achieve health equity.
The social and economic environments where we live are critical to our health and well-being. The Sudbury & District Health Unit is committed to actions that will reduce health inequities and create opportunities for all members of our communities to be healthy.
Sudbury & District Health Unit Health Equity Vision — 2020
The Sudbury & District Health Unit will work to improve the overall health and health equity of area citizens so that:
- systemic and avoidable health disparities are steadily reduced and the gap in health between the best and worst off is narrowed;
- all citizens have equal opportunities for good health and well-being; and
- all citizens have equitable access to a full range of high-quality public health programs and services
