We fulfill our mission through advocacy, collaboration, education and research, and do this work through the spectrum of public health practice; including prevention, promotion, protection, and policy. Two of PHABC’s key programs, Kids Boost Immunity and I Boost Immunity require ongoing financial support to sustain and grow for the long term.

Kids Boost Immunity (KBI) is a bilingual digital educational platform consisting of free online lessons, videos and quizzes for students from grades 4-12 across Canada. Materials are aligned to curricular outcomes in all provinces and territories in science, social sciences, health, critical thinking and media awareness. KBI is a made-in-BC program with a national and international presence developed over several years and involves many partnerships, including UNICEF Canada. For more information about KBI, go to

I Boost immunity (IBI) is similar to KBI but designed to educate adults through a series of free onlines quizzes, articles, and stories all about the importance of immunization. A unique feature of both platforms is a participatory reward that enables users to earn and donate vaccines for children through a partnership with UNICEF Canada.
