Health and well-being are everyone's business, and must involve the broader public, private and civil sectors. Ongoing engagement of all residents, including meaningful involvement of those most affected, is also needed.
Achieving a healthy city for all is a collective effort of all members of our community. None of us can achieve the Healthy City Strategy's goals on our own, but through collaboration, integration and innovation we can make a difference on complex social challenges.
We use a number of data sources to monitor trends in the health of the city. We will develop ways to monitor progress toward Collaborative Leadership through the work of the Healthy City for All Leadership Table.
Participation in Healthy City for All Leadership Table Meetings
"Actions for All" implemented
Wider Collaboration Assessment
Steps toward achieving this goal in the first four years of the Healthy City Strategy.
The Healthy City For All leadership table will guide the development of and be a champion for the Healthy City for All vision.
The leadership table is a key component of the engagement process.
It will facilitate enhanced collaboration and innovation for improving the health and well-being of all citizens of Vancouver.
Members include champions from a number of sectors throughout the city such as senior government, early childhood development, social justice, public health, business, education, arts and culture, and senior city staff.
The City of Vancouver and the regional health authority work in partnership to achieve the vision of A Healthy City for All. Vancouver Coastal Health provides health services, public health and research to support health and well-being in Vancouver.
