Primary Health Care
In May 2010 we launched our Primary Health Care and Chronic Disease Management Initiative at CMHA Toronto. The goal of this initiative is to enhance primary health care and management of chronic diseases for our clients in four strategic areas:
1. Improving access
2. Partnership development
3. Education and health promotion and
4. Coordination of health service delivery
Responsiveness to our clients’ needs is a key element of primary health care. We have been emphasizing the importance of:
• health promotion
• disease and injury prevention
• chronic disease management.
Our goal is to offer services that promote our clients’ overall health and well being and improve access for them to primary health care in the community.
