Population Health

 Population Health
Improving the health of the population involves a long-term vision and commitment to reach desired outcomes. To have a significant impact on the health of the population, Eastern Health must provide the education and tools necessary to promote healthy lifestyle choices and to prevent illnesses early in life
The Province of Newfoundland and Labrador has some of the poorest lifestyle practices and health indicators in the country, which underlines the urgency to chart a new course. As a result, Eastern Health will collaborate with various partners on strategies that target the province’s youngest population, as well as the significant portion of the population that is affected by chronic diseases such as cancerAs part of this focus, Eastern Health will look to engage with communities as partners to determine appropriate initiatives to improve the health of the population.
This priority also aligns with the Provincial Government’s Strategic Direction: Better Health for the Population.
By March 31, 2020 Eastern Health will work toward improving the health of the population through identified strategies/initiatives.
