Welcome to the
Public Health Association of British Columbia
The Public Health Association of BC is a voluntary, non-profit, non-government, member driven organization that provides leadership to promote health, well-being and social equity. We fulfill our mission through advocacy, collaboration, education and research and do this work though the spectrum of public health practice; including prevention, promotion, protection and policy.
The Board of Directors is composed of public health leaders from various locales including Health Authorities, the Ministry of Health, post-secondary institutions, and the non-profit sector. The Association was founded in 1953 and has close to 500 members.
In 2019, a culmination of a two-year effort resulted in PHABC’s successful application for charitable status. PHABC is now a registered charity and all funds donated will support our efforts to create a safe, healthy and fair British Columbia for all.
A fair and healthy British Columbia for all.
PHABC promotes health, wellbeing and equity for all British Columbians through leadership in public health.
As a member-driven organization, we fulfill our mission through advocacy, collaboration and engagement activities, education, and research throughout the spectrum of public health practice and systems including prevention, promotion, protection and policy.
Eliminating poverty; reducing health/socioeconomic inequities; addressing climate change and healthy environments; contributing to a sustainable, equitable economy; and preventing violence.
