Canadian Health Network
The decision to terminate the Canadian Health Network by the Public Health Agency of Canada was a concern for the Public Health Association of BC. A letter to the Honourable Tony Clements from PHABC President Ted Bruce, noted the ‘Network provides both important information for self-care management and an opportunity to increase the health literacy of Canadians’. PHABC noted the need for an alternative plan to ensure the health information needs of Canadians are met. In his response, the Minister of Health noted that the PHAC website will seem to play this role.
