Joint Report on First Nations Health and Wellness Is Now Available

A groundbreaking joint report from the Office of the Provincial Health Officer and the Office of the Chief Medical Officer is now available.

Titled First Nations Population Health and Wellness Agenda (PHWA), it is the fruit of a unique and multi-year partnership between the province and the First Nations Health Authority (FNHA), providing an eagle-eye view of the health and wellness of First Nations people living throughout BC.

“The PHWA is much more than just a health status report,” explains Acting Chief Medical Officer Dr. Shannon McDonald. “It is an act of self-determination. First Nations are controlling our own data and telling our own story in a way that reflects our strengths and resilience.”
